First day at The Engine Room Posted on 2015-06-17 by Pedro Hernandez

I was a bit nervous as I walked into the recording room, but nevertheless, the staff at The Engine Room made it comfortable. First, I was introduce to students that been in the recording program. The group of interns that attended this particular session were a mix of students that been there for three months, and some for six months, and knew the way around the studio. With people at all different levels I was somewhat worried that they might not be willing to help someone that has no clue of what goes on in the recording studio. However, that was not the case at all the student were glad to help with any question I had, and that made the experience well worth it. Today I learned how to rig up a Fender 65 Deluxe guitar amp with two different microphones a SM57 and a MD421 to create a stereo track. The microphones were placed about 6” from the center of the speakers and the sound was absolutely incredible. The other part of the session we recorded acoustic guitar with a really cool tube microphone. The Telefunken u47 gave the acoustic guitar a warm sound. We also laid down double tracks for the acoustic guitar that made the recording sound fuller and wider.
