My RPM Challenge Recording Setup
Since this is my first time blogging about my RPM experiences I thought I’d post my current home recording setup first!
I use a Line 6 Pod X3 Live Floorboard for all the electric guitar and bass tones. The Pod also doubles as my recording interface straight into a laptop running Reaper as my main DAW. For acoustic mic’ing I have an MXL DRK large diaphragm condenser and a Shure SM57 (though this chap is mainly used for live sound these days). I tend to run these into a Mackie 14 channel mixer then back to the Pod. I do a lot of my monitoring via a pair of Sennheiser headphones. Not ideal but my speakers are a million miles away from flat response!
As for favourite VSTs and drum programs I plan to do a dedicated post sometime between recording and mixing the project. Watch this space…
