I have enjoyed writing and recording some original easy-listening acoustic guitar driven tracks in the last couple of weeks. If you're looking for a laid-back acoustic guitar that’s perfect for setting a romantic, sentimental, or mellow tone then this track is a good suggestion.
It's ideal for photo slideshows, family movies, wedding videos, commercials, or any project needing an upbeat but relaxed vibe.
Recorded using a Santa Cruz 1934 OM Grand with Neumann KM84 Vintage microphones.
Take a Listen: Warm Sentimental Acoustic
I'm working with a couple of new tools in my studio that I'm thrilled about. The first is the AEA N22 Nuvo Ribbon Microphone. I love how warm and natural this microphone is. It sounds great on anything you throw at it and is especially finding a home with my voice over work. I also recently began using the Triad-Orbit Microphone Stand products. Holy Cow! This stuff is great! Yes, it's pricey but it's so well made and speeds up my work process so much. I highly recommend both these items.
My latest kick has been producing instrumental children's music. I've recently added some additional sounds to my arsenal such as Vienna Instruments Percussion sounds and Vienna Instruments Brass Sounds. I'm especially enjoying the muted trumpet sound.. These sounds have enhanced my ability to make my tracks pop with a fun & "kid-like" feeling.
