Ice Crystal Formations (Zoom R16,Monotribe,Volca Keys,MS-20,TR-8)

Published on Feb 15, 2016 Metatron's Cube

"An experimentation of sorts, once again. The experiment is mostly on the recording end this time. A Zoom R16 multi-track recorder was purchased while they were on sale a few weeks back, and so far we have been mighty impressed with the thing. Originally I wanted something portable(battery powered) and completely free from the computer that could also act as a mixer as well(possible forest volca sessions? Techno at the creek?).
So far it fits the bill and more. We recorded the 4 tracks in stereo mode(we have not played with mono recording on it yet, but plan to). The four instruments were all dialed in(peaking) at around -12db at their loudest during recording(according to the on-board VU meters). Final volume levels were then adjusted in Presonus One with a touch of compression(more as track "glue") and limiting. I plan on trying out all the on-board stuff that the Zoom has too( it has effects/mixing/mastering etc). Lots of exploring to do. The '"cold" tone of music continues with the snow outside. Have a good week, thanks for watching and listening!
