The first secret to capturing a great recording is to start with a great musician, and we were lucky enough to begin working with the hugely talented Chris Champion in our Studio Sessions class on Friday.
Chris is a phenomenal jazz guitarist who recently moved to the area from Arizona. He played an interpretation of “Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise” with multiple layers of overdubs that ended up sounding like an acoustic trio.
It was great to put some of our techniques into practice, including mic placement, setting proper levels, routing a headphone mix, and multitrack editing in Pro Tools. We are looking forward to working much more with Chris in future sessions!
