Wall Of Sound is a small, independent recording studio based in Leith, Edinburgh.

With decades of experience in mixing heavy music, both live and in the studio, I pride myself on being able to capture the sound of a band without putting my own stamp on it.

Of Spire & Throne

Last weekend saw the start of tracking for the new Of Spire & Throne album. 3 days in Edinburgh’s Chamber Studio getting the drums, bass & guitars down.

There is still a massive amount of work to go into this record but it’s shaping up to be an absolute monster!

Snaggletooth

Back at the start of February I got asked to record a live set for my pals in Tommy Concrete and the Werewolves who were doing a tribute night for Lemmy to raise money for the Ronnie James Dio cancer fund.

Being a massive Motorhead fan I couldn’t exactly turn this one down & it was a lot of fun to work on. The gig itself had a great atmosphere and gettin to mix songs i’ve been listening to for 20 years or so was great fun.

Tried to keep it as “Live” sounding as possible as I really didn’t want a proper polished sound for this one and I think it turned out great!

New Console

Presonus 16.4.2

So I decided to change things around a little bit and get a new mixing console. I find using an actual mixing console improves workflow dramatically but choosing the right console was difficult. There are so many to choose from, all with great features and great sound quality…

In the end I got a great deal on a Presonus 16.4.2 digital console. It provides a 18*16 interface for my pro tools rig with excellent AD/DA converters as well as 16 XMAX pre-amps but also allows me to mix much more intuitively whilst lifting some of the processing power off of the computer.

Very much looking forward to getting it set up and doing my first full session with it 🙂

More Live & Studio stuff…

Beyer M201

Been a great couple of months here at Wall Of Sound 🙂

Had studio sessions with the mighty Runemaster and new Livingston band Parallel Lights, both of which should be available soon for your aural delight!

I’ve also done a couple of really cool live recording sessions with Ricky Warwick/Damon Johnson (Black Star Riders) & Cherie Currie (The Runaways). These were a lot of fun to record but have been sent off to be mixed elsewhere. Will keep you posted on release dates etc…

Last, but not least, I picked up a few new toys for the studio in the form of a dbx channel strip, some Triton Audio Fethead inline pre’s and a Beyer M-201

New Gear

Well… I’ve had a good few months of upgrading gear for the studio!

In the last 3 months I have upgraded to an Apple Imac 2.8ghz quad core which has loads more processing power than the old Macbook I was using.

I’ve upgraded my monitors to JBL LSR308 speakers. These have much better mid & low range as well as much better imaging than my old Alesis monitors. Very pleased with these 🙂

I’ve moved up to Pro-Tools 12, although I still have Logic X if anyone prefers that system.

I’ve got a load of Slate digital plugins, which are really, really nice! Some of the nicest digital EQ’s I have used, in fact 🙂

Lastly, I’ve picked up some nice deals on DI boxes & mics which round out the mic locker….

Live room is taking shape & I should hopefully get some photos up soon. Control room is still in flux but will hopefully get a more permanent solution in the game soon!
