Bit of an experiment, this one. Trying to get that kind of deep south swamp feel played on substandard equipment.

Went for as lo-fi sound as I could. Miked the kit from a distance using just my AKG D112 kick mic - the closest thing I have to an old-school, large-diaphragm mic. Recorded the kit in mono from there. Took the pillow out of my bass drum - it's a bit *too* boomy - stuck a towel on the snare drum and EQ'd a lot of the top and bottom out on mix down. Then just played a very simple backing beat, trying to emulate the simplicity of the old-school blues players.

Not entirely sure if this has worked. Please tell me whether it sucks or not!

Enjoy.

Thank you, Kei. Did you use a digital vibrato? Sounds like an old Vibro Champ!

Amp Designer is in the Apple Logic Pro has very good. If there is a MacBook and an audio interface I put out this sound in the kitchen. I hope to want true Vibroverb Amp and uni-vibe :)
