Today’s session was very busy with composition, research and recording. The first half an hour of the session was spent researching techniques for micing up a piano. This was very beneficial for the practical part of the session as we used techniques we previously would not have been aware of.
After researching we organised the project ready for recording demo tracks. For today only we had access the the university studio which allowed us to use the TL Audio desk and the Bechstein piano. We made use of the facilities and got an clean recording from the piano. To get the best sound out of the piano we used the the techniques found in our research. This included the correct microphone placement and the removal of the covers on the front of the piano.
