New Member In L.A.

Hello GS,

I'm Brandon from L.A. I've found helpful info and very interesting discussions here over the years, and felt that now was the time finally to join. Lately, I've found discussions on acoustic treatment, preamps, and SDCs especially of interest.

I'm a musician/writer, and have allowed myself to slide on the technical side. Recently I decided it was the time to change, and have begun investing in the tools to help better express my ideas.

Now I'm gathering acoustic panels to outfit my work spaces, upgrading storage, and slowly choosing a few pieces of nice hardware to round out my go-to gear.

Mainly I record vocals and my upright piano, using samples or synths for the rest. I struggle to crisply describe the style of my work, but I tend toward an acoustic+ aesthetic with a fondness for the 'air' and depth of live jazz recordings.

My gear:

2x Rode NTK (1 with Telefunken E88cc tube)
2x Shure SM81LC
1x Shure SM7B + Cloudlifter

2x ART Prochannel (1st gen)

In the pipeline: Forssell SMP-2B preamp

Pro Tools 12, w/Digi 003 & mainly stock plugins, except for Ample Bass Upright VST + PSP Xenon limiter plugin. I'd like to add a few more key mixing/mastering plugins eventually.

Good to meet everyone!

- Brandon

Thanks Synth Guru and boombapdame. The welcome feels good. As for track links... that's kind of what nudged me down the acoustics rabbit hole. I've been disappointed with my mixes so many times; it finally dawned on me that the one thing I hadn't addressed was sound treatment.

That's a long way of saying that I don't have any tracks up, but I will. In the meantime, I hope you'll bear with me as I get my recording and mixing environment in order.
