I just finished recording at Austin’s Ohm studio, with Day VS Night. Before hand we rehearsed twice a week for 6 weeks, playing songs we’ve played a long time. We practiced with a click track. When we hit the studio we were a well oiled machine, our songs were tight, and we could focus on sound quality and performance.
Ohm studio has a nice drum room with tall ceilings and attractive wood decor. The wood decor is made from what would be other wise disposed of wood, unusable scrap from a carpenter. Instead Chico assembled it in to these attractive panels that add mass to the walls and help break up sound waves.
On some of the slower songs I used the studio’s Black Beauty snare, a Ludwig which is from the same family as my own Supraphonic, but much deeper and with a longer sound.
Now for some photos
