I did some live recording with The Elusive Teeth last night. We set up in our normal rehearsal venue and the sound engineer parked his van in the car park, ran a stagebox up to the room and caught our performances on tape.
It sounded pretty good although the mix went straight to a stereo recording; no multitrack opportunity to go back and fix any mistakes! However, although we did have some false starts and did second takes on a few songs I’m confident that we’ll have a decent versions of most of the numbers we did last night. We should get a CD back in the next week or so; that will be the proof of the pudding.
The only thing lacking is the sound of a rapturous audience clapping and cheering. I guess we’ll just have to add on a canned version like the do in real life … 😉
