New Song And Video

So …. I ended up filming a video for the last song I recorded.

There is a first for everything and i’m really pleased with the way it turned out.

Let me know what you think

SE Electronics RF-X Reflexion Filter Review / Comparison

SE reflexion filter

I have just purchased a new piece of equipment for my home studio; An SE electronics reflexion filter. The reflexion filter aims to cut out room acoustics for your recordings. I chose to buy the RF-X model, mainly because I’m a musician and we’re always skint! It’s the cheapest version at £65. I’ve heard wonderful things about all the models.

I thought it would be helpful to write a little review of the product. I’ve also made an audio comparison of the same song recorded firstly without the SE reflexion filter then with the filter. Here it is;

There are no FX on the vocal and each recording is set at exactly the same db. I was roughly 5 to 6 inches from the mic in both recordings. I do have foam on the wall behind the mic to help absorb any reflections.

I can hear a real difference in the 2 recordings and as soon as I sing into the reflexion filter I can hear the sound being absorbed rather than reflecting around the room. It’s a similar feeling to being in an actual vocal booth. I also noticed that it helps keeps the noise from outside from spilling into the mic.

For anyone who thinks it’s just a piece of foam stuck onto a piece of plastic, it’s not! There are many layers in between and it’s been specifically designed to absorb frequencies evenly.

This is going to make a great deal of difference to my home recording studio and session vocals service and I’d recommend the SE reflexion filter to any professional musician.

Something A Little Different

Mondo Techno Band

I had an online vocal session about a month ago with a chap who goes by the name of ‘Mondo Techno’.

A kind of surreal Electronica dance track.

It’s available to download for free but for those who can afford to you can buy it on Bandcamp , it’s only £2.50 for the whole album which I think is very reasonable.

Here it is, enjoy.

I’ll Take Your Brain To Another Dimension!

Strawberry Fair Cambridge

Earlier on in the year I sang on a track for a chap called Phil Mac

I’ve done quite a bit of work for him but this particular track was an Electro Swing cover of ‘Out Of Space’ by The Prodigy. Yes, it has to be heard to be believed!

Here it is being played by him at Strawberry Fair, Cambridge. Great to hear people loving it and singing along to my vocal.
