Another song and only one day to professionally produce it! Possible? Absolutely! The pros at Dubway Studios do it again recording the rock duo, The End Men, in this new episode in our Docutorial™ series we call SongCraft!
In this second episode, Brooklyn based band, The End Men –comprised of duo Matthew Hendershot and Livia Ranalli– collaborate with NYC singer/songwriter Ben Arthur. Together they wrote a song called Whisky Rain and hopped the A-Train to the world class Dubway studios in NYC where they arranged, tracked, and mixed the newborn song in a one, jam-packed music production marathon. We pick up the drama in the Dubway control room where studio owners and producers Al Houghton and Mike Crehore start the process of bringing the nascent song to life!
Watch along as they work non stop –all day long– miking and tracking drums, guitars, vocals and keyboards. All the while our expert MPV production team is right there documenting the whole process every step of the way. And, as the session proceeds, you’ll learn some cool guerrilla recording, microphone, arranging, and mixing techniques with a focus on some vintage sounding Universal Audio hardware and software. You’ll be a fly on the wall to all the subtle decisions that occur during the process which help bring this dark whisky-voiced rock song to life! And be sure to keep you eyes open for our intrepid rodent narrator the ubiquitous studio rat with his informative, tech chalk talks!
So if you're looking to learn about the recording process and see the pro-studio workflow in action, this tutorial, SongCraft: Producing The End Men is a must see!
