Bass Buildup? Try a Bigger Room – Recording Cello In The Studio
Michael Ronstadt is a very accomplished cellist and is our number one choice when it comes to recording strings in the studio. In the past I’ve recorded Michael in our vocal room (which is acoustically dead for a very produced sound), but lately I’ve put him in the live room and utilized our new mobile absorption panels. This gives us flexibility in adjusting the reflections around him while avoiding the bass buildup typically found in smaller rooms and keeps the cello’s natural low mids from getting muddy. Michael just finished tracking Farther to Run by Lori Sumberg and is currently working on Todd Whisler’s progressive album. Maybe the distortion pedal will make an appearance!
