    So around Christmas we, the gentlemen of Leopold & Loeb, recorded our first album in a marathon 2-and-a-half-day session. Mixing it in a few days, and then it'll be done - 12 tracks, with overdubs and whatever treatments. We're gonna call it "Life & 99."

    On our myspace, nestled among the live recordings and our first demos, is a rough mix of "Stacy By Gaslight," our newest (and quietest) song. I finished it on a Thursday, taught the other guys on Friday, performed it Friday night, recorded it Saturday. Whoa. It still needs a little balancing, a little compression, and a fade out at the end, but it still sounds pretty good.

    Recording information:
    One take live instrumental, one take vocal overdubbed.

    Guitar: Carvin DC135 (neck pickup, tone rolled off a bit) into Roger Mayer Voodoo Vibe (set to Tremolo) into Peavey Classic 30 (with the treble on only 1 or 2).
    Mics: SM57, some sort of LDC that I didn't recognize

    Bass - and here's the good stuff: Grosh P/J bass into Aguilar DC359 tube bass amp, direct signal + 4x10 mic'ed with an AKG D112. Way smoother of a sound than he usually goes for, but it was great for this one.

    Vocal: Me, a Royer 122 ribbon mic, a Heil dynamic, and an Avalon preamp/compressor.

    Hope you like! More to come soon!

    Me likey, even though I'd keep the intro @ less than 30something seconds.
    How did u manage the phase issue on the bass, between direct (love the Aguilar BTW) and the mic'd sound?

    Thanks guys =)
    I honestly have no idea... I think they were pretty much in phase to begin with, because when we threw up the faders it just sounded bigger.
