SonicScoop & SoundToys Present…Inside Sessions at The Fred Perry Artists Lounge

Our second “Inside Sessions” comes at you from The Fred Perry Artists Lounge at Stratosphere Sound – an event we co-sponsored with Just Managing, SoundToys, Blue Microphones, Insound and Brooklyn Brewery.

For this video, we interviewed three of the day’s bands – Tall Ships, 1, 2, 3 and Widowspeak – and engineer Geoff Sanoff about the experience of tracking live in the studio.

Over the course of an 8-hour day, Sanoff tracked seven bands (also, Caveman, Waters, Weekend and Gauntlet Hair), and mixed the best recordings by each band in the days following. Matt Shane mastered the material for an Insound digital mixtape – also featuring interviews with the bands by the hilarious David Rees. Click to download.

Thanks to our sponsors! Sanoff used Blue Microphones’ Dragonfly, Reactor, Woodpecker and Mouse mics on drums, Vox and AC30 amps, and glockenspiel. Blue encore 200 or 300 mics captured all the vocals. SoundToys EchoBoy, Decaptitator and FilterFreak plug-ins were instrumental in the mixing of these tracks.
