I'm just listening to the downloaded album and I'm totally agree wi=
th the other LAU folks, the album is really good: a tasty mix of Jazz, expe=
rimentation and even a little progressive at times (ie the sound of the Mel=
lotron on track 5).
I think this won't be the last time I listen to it.
So, you have already list the gear you used to record. BTW, very clean and =
professional recording. I would like to know something about how was the pr=
ocess to the final mix, given that you played it all and it seems in differ=
ent (maybe distant) points in time.
Thanks for sharing.

There's not really much to it actually.. I haven't put way too much=
time in the mixing/mastring process.. just the usual of getting things to =
fit compression, eq, and some automatation... In the stuka song I have only=
a h4n as overheads + kick and snare but no tom mics so the sound stands ou=
t alitle from the rest on that song.. I allways emphasize the 1100hz region=
on the uprightbass to give more of that buzzy sound, I'm using the 4-b=
and parametric eq... I've been refence listening alot to The Bad Plus a=
s this is the band that has inspired me the most lately.. I use the same pa=
nning idea they've got on most of their songs, eg bass and piano to the=
sides and the drums !everywhere! -_- It really separates things! I also ma=
ke use of the ir-lv2 plug alot, mostly for room emulation and reverbs.. I r=
ecord the drums in a bad sounding, boxy garage so I put the OH's quite =
close to the drums and use room emulation instead.. as for mastering I real=
ly just try to get the levels sort of the same with a limiter...
