Peace Sand Rest

Drums We did almost all of the drum tracks for the album in a day, with the exceptions being Intro and The Interlude. Those two tracks were recorded separately from the rest of the album using a much more restricted 4-mic set up, with the D112 on Kick, SM57 on Snare Top, and two ART AR5’s for overheads. Scott (Drums) and Kellen (Guitars, Vocals) played the tracks together during the recording process due to the…

Justin Strode – Megalomaniac

Megalomaniac is a solo album created as part of the Record Production Month Challenge in 2018. The idea was to record and release an album within the month of February, but I decided to take it a step farther and produce an entire album from the ground up, from writing right up to mastering. This was quite the challenge, and an incredibly rewarding (if not exhausting) experience in the end, with the opportunity to really…

Demon Seeds – The Prologue

Velvet Bison – Mammoths/Whims of Lions

Velvet Bison – A 3 piece stoner band from down here in Peterborough. These guys came to the studio for a couple days to track two songs for a new 7″LP. Something that stood out with me on this project was the order of operations. When tracking on my own pace, it’s normally something like Bass and/or Drums first, then Guitars, Keys, Vocals, and little extra things at the end of the projects. Not These…

Justin Strode – Disaster Inverted

Disaster Inverted is one of my solo EPs, made over the course of the last two years (2014 – 15). I decided to do almost everything on this EP within the computer as an experiment to see just how capable my setup was at crafting entire tones in-the-box, so to speak. The guitars and bass were all done through Guitar Rig 5, drums were a combination of Addictive Drums and on-board sets from Ableton Live.…

DTD – Broken Inside

This song comes from a three piece band recorded out in Millbrook, using the Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 and Octopre MKII Dynamic. We recorded the drums and bass in their jam room, which was conveniently a concrete chamber with a bunch of sound treatment rigs on the walls. The bass was recorded with a DI box and shaped in Pro Tools, and on the drums: Kick: D112 on Front, SM57 on Beater Snare: Sm57 on Top…
