Love on the Wrong Side of Town, cover, mic test

Post by Omegaman » Sun Mar 19, 2017 5:40 pm

Picked up a Shure 55S SeriesII for the look. ;) did a test record with it. Sounds pretty good on teh vocals, but the sax is a bit harsh even though I was back from it. It also seems very sensitive to plosives. Got it for live work, so maybe not an issue. Recorded in Adobe Audition. Aforementioned mic into an Aphex 107 pre amp, M-Audio 2496.

Hey, Billy! :D
Gave it a spin. I really enjoy what you did with the tune and your vocal is still nice and crisp and clean. Mic is making everything sound nice and clean. My only nit is the sax is a bit off key (sounds sharp to my ears), but apart from that, the performance is great.

:^: :D

I've never heard this song before so it's all new to me. Nice song. Snappy. Nice vocal performance. Sax sounds good to me. It may start off a bit harsh but it fall into line soon enough.

Good to hear you recording again.
