69: Recording Brass Instruments (Eric Skazzini – Voodoo Glow Skulls)

Ah the sound of REAL brass in a recording. It’s a beautiful thing but how in the world do you record these loud beasts?

Today, we’re talking to Eric Skazzini – who plays tenor sax in the timeless ska punk band Voodoo Glow Skulls – about how he was able to track killer sax tracks for the latest Voodoo record in his spare bedroom. You will learn:

  • Basics of mic selection and placement
  • Why a second mic in the right spot on a sax can add a TON of magic intimacy to a performance
  • Why recording more parts than you think necessary can be a magic bullet for a busy mix (and which parts to record)
  • How to produce better sounding horns using virtual instruments
  • How a successful band wrote and recorded an entire album during a pandemic (and why so can you!)
  • Tricks for miking horns live (and why it’s a bit different than recording)
  • Why saxophone may be nerdier than trombone but why it’s also sexier
  • And more!
