River Road Recording Studio

River Road Recording Studio.

I decided to take a week away from home and cut a bunch of demo tracks for a selection of songs that Lindsay Gould and I have been working on. My recording gear fits easily into the boot of the car and by mid afternoon we were set up and ready to go in our favourite hideout at the Porongurup National Park

Enjoying the recording process.
Porongurup is a little piece of remote country, where we go, from time to time, to recharge our life batteries.
My home studio is called Studio 453, when we are set up at Porongurup it's called River Road Recording Studio. At River Road I put down guide tracks for eleven songs and then single tracked the guitar and then the vocal. 

The Rode NT2000 was worth its weight in gold and recorded a good solid wave for my Maton guitar. The noise of the local wildlife interrupted our recording from time to time but mostly we were able to work, unchecked, in the cool of the morning and it was a thoroughly enjoyable recording experience. Thanks to Cakewalk's Sonar X3 Studio who never let us down.

Lindsay will be recording the Sax back at Studio 453, looking forward to the mixdown.

The Sound Engineer gets a pretty good view.
