One of the most recent audio/visual collaborations between the studio and song-writer Dave Collins has had a big result. This short YouTube video has been nominated as a featured video on the home page on the NME no less.

A huge thanks to Dave Collins and the NME for allowing us to use this footage and media.

A short acoustic audio clip from a recent recording session at Curly Lead Recording Studios, Nottingham by legendary songwriter Dave Collins – featuring producer Dave Buckley on lead guitar and set visually to a short excerpt from our show reel.

The finger-picking was recorded with a matched stereo pair of Audio Technica AT4041 condensers with Dave’s Custom Patrick Eggle and the solo on our vintage “JJ” James Joyce Signature Model.

The solo was recorded with a combination of the AT4041’s and a Sontronics Omega Tube mic through two TL Audio 5051 Valve pre-amps and Drawmer 251 Spectral Compressors and our main 32 track midi-automated Soundcraft Ghost desk.

Mastered with our Quested H208 Monitors.
