Peach Tree Street - March 20th, 2009

I wanted to record a "rough sketch" of Peach Tree Street, one of the songs that I will present for my final project. It is an original song that I performed using my Eastman acoustic electric guitar. I used the two Neumann condenser microphones in an X/Y configuration in order to produce a good stereo session of both pieces. I decided to place these in front of the lower f-hole of my guitar, which produced a fairly rich sound on two different channels. I then panned the two channels left and right in the mix.

After recording Peach Tree Street, I equalized the guitar to roll-off some of the guitar's low-end frequencies. Then I panned the two channels left and right, added reverb two the left channel, and added a 17.7 millisecond digital delay to the right channel. Finally, put a limiter on the main mix and bounced the file to an MP3.
