Myrtle Beach, SC (February 21, 2006)–Houston-based rock band Chain has been recording and mixing an upcoming album at Sea Note Recording, with producer/engineer Bruce Bailey. Bailey tracked the band on a vintage MCI JH series console to Otari Radar system using the MCI pre amps and API Lunchbox mic pres (528Cs) and EQs (550As).
Pictured in front of the MCI at Sea Note are Chain and producer/engineer Bruce Baily (standing center). Bailey’s “ever-present” co-producer (and Jack Russell Terrier), Rusty Hammer, is pictured in the hands of Chain lead singer Brian.
Bailey miked the band using nearly all Audio Technica microphones, including the A-T 4050, 4051, 4047, 3031, and 5100s, as well a pair of custom kick drum mics fabricated from SM57s, and a Blue Blueberry mic. Compressors used included Joe Meek, ART VLA, Urie 1178, dbx 160 and 166. Mixing is being done on the MCI JH series console, which has been retrofitted with a Yamaha DM2000.
