One Question Interviews: Western Addiction

Western Addiction

SPB: Was the mic’ing of your kit in the studio for Frail Bray fairly straight-forward, or were there some things you and the engineer did to find the right mics or experiment with sounds? 

Jack Shirley (producer): The mic’ing was pretty straight forward. I have a default configuration I like to start with. If it sounds right, we go with it. 

Chad Williams (drummer): We used Jack Shirley’s go-to mic setup for the drum kit, made a couple positioning tweaks based on the sound we heard back from tape playback, and really just went for the live sound and feel.
