Description: Enter the world famous Capitol Studios to witness a rare big band recording! Join legendary Al Schmitt and renowned Capitol engineer Steve Genwick as they record MONK’estra, a band of jazz pianist and composer John Beasley. In Studio A, the duo show where the musicians will sit, explain how to achieve separation, and explain their choice of microphones and suitable alternatives. On the other side of the glass, you will see which preamps are preferred depending on the source and will learn about the entire signal flow implemented for the session. Genwick discusses headphone monitor mix sends and effects, shares reverb settings, and provides some helpful tips for Pro Tools performance.
