We’ve all seen and admired the legendary studios, where our favourite engineers produced the classic records which have shaped our taste in music, and remain relevant even decades after their release.
These studios often boast 100 000s, if not millions of dollars in equipment, and provide engineers, producers, and sometimes even multiple assistants for a single recording session.
While this is fantastic and convenient for everyone involved, for most of us, it simply isn’t the way we record music.
Nowadays, the majority of producers are working out of their home-studios, using a small selection of gear they’ve accumulated over the years.
But even more than that: More often than not, we’ll be recording our own bands, juggling the role of a producer, recording engineer, as well as that of an artist.
Can we still produce records that sound amazing, shape music history and stand the test of time?
That’s what ‘The Art Of Capturing A Live Performance’ is all about.
Inside, professional producer Manny Nieto (Distortion Felix, The Breeders, Health, Los Lobos) teaches you how to master the challenge of being the engineer, guitarist, and lead singer of your band, all at once.
Filmed over multiple days, Manny breaks down his studio setup, and guides you through every step of recording and mixing an edgy Rock song live off the floor.
From instrument selection, to micing techniques and processing chains, all the way to his unique mixing approach.
In this comprehensive guide, Manny teaches you how to create a massive, analogue sounding Rock anthem, without having to spend a fortune on gear!
