Once again, the pureMix team performed on the Sweetwater Gearfest theater stage. Fab and Ben recorded The Liza Colby Sound, live, no safety net, showing how to place microphones, use preamps and process audio in real time while recording it.

This is Part 1 of this seminar, dealing with the setup and kick drum recording.

The band was tracked with a full line of Lauten Audio (Atlantis, Clarion) and Blue (Mouse, Dragonflies, Stage 2 Bottle) microphones, UAD Apollo preamps and plugins, Manley (TNT Cool & Hot Pre, Dual Mono Pre) preamps, Dangerous Bax Eq, monitored through a Dangerous D-box and a pair of Focal Twins 6 and CMS Sub speakers.

Fab! It is so great to watch you and Ben work! I love your common sense approach and how you learn from your mistakes while you keep trying different mic placements until you find the right sound. Good advice that if you can't find the right mic placement: then do something to change the source. You make all of that hard work so much fun with your great sense of humor! Thanks for being there for us! Becky Jo Benson
