MAIN CONTEST

 

We have an absolute BANGER of a tune for our main contest this month!  I’m thrilled to present “Lozer” by the band “As We Are”…..Huge thanks to band member Giulio Ferrara for providing us with this amazing song.  This production is a huge testament to the power of a strong mix. The raw tracks (organic drums, and guitar DI’s) were sent to one of Italy’s top mixer/producers, Fabricio Pan, who turned this recording into an incredible pop punk song. Have a listen for yourself….the video ROCKS!  We are so lucky to be able to mix this song at Tourna-mix – please show the band some love and give them a “like” on youtube!  Should be a sick contest this month!  Get on it!

 

Here’s how this song was recorded…..Giulio Ferrara says:

Ok, so basically we used a Tascam 16×08 as audio interface and logic pro x for tracking

Drum mics:

Kick audix d6
Snare top sontronics solo
Snare bottom Samson q snare
Tom Samson q tom
Floor tom Samson q tom
Overheads rode nt5 mp
Room rode nt1a
China behringer c4
Hh behringer c4

Guitars and bass Zoom g5 Di box into an Art tube mp preamp (we don’t have tracks with amp on since it’s been reamped by our producer, by the way he used a Mesa boogie triple rectifier with an sm57 on axis near the center of the speaker)

Vocals: rode nt1a into a room 4x3x5 (treated)
