, I See A Darkness .mp3
I can't say how relieved I am to finally have found a vocal microphone that I like the sound of, after trying six different ones over the last few years. It's a Heil PR-40, and although I doubt anyone here cares I'd heartily recommend it to any bass/baritone who's recording in an untreated or crappy sounding room. Everyone else seems to love the SM7 for such an application, but I did not!
Anyways, here is me covering Bonnie Prince Billy's "I See A Darkness". I also feel like I'm finally starting to figure out how to use my voice, a lot of which has been downtuning my guitars and forgetting about trying to hit high notes.
I can't hear much difference between this and >>2292, but I like 2292 a bit better, it might be a bit more "chimey" sounding that 2294, which sounds like the upper mids have been boosted a bit. And see, tying this into what you said earlier about post-production, I think that when one spends enough time on something it's super easy to get neurotic about little details that no one else even notices. I don't say that as a judgement, of you or I or anyone, just and observation.
Also, about the VSTs, I definitely didn't mean any acoustic guitar emulation, just effects like compression and reverb.
