Charlie takes last week’s room sound and demonstrates some techniques to get the most out of your room mics in the mix.

The room sound was captured with Audio Technica 4050s in XY. EQ, delay, and both plug-in and hardware compression were used to enhance our room sound and increase it’s apparent size.

We used the Avid EQIII, Compressor/Limiter III, and BF76 pulg-ins. All of these come stock with Pro Tools.

The Alan Smart C1 and Overstayer Stereo VCA compressors were applied to the room mics on an insert in the mix.

All of the sounds were recorded for Room Mics pt1 using Charlies house kit.
