Made it back to the fantabulous cavernous main tracking room at Water Music with producer Kato Khandwala to work on tracks for the band Cavo with drummer Chad La Roy. The studio is one of the biggest left in the NYC area and it is a real pleasure to track drums there, what with the resident Neve board and fantastic local pizza.
Looking at the pictures you can see that we used baffles or gobos to contain and corral the sound of the kit. This is common practice in recording studios. It helps balance what the room mics "hear" and by controlling some of the sound reflection the room doesn't get too overpowered by the volume of the drums.
