So whats the recording-chain for these libraries, I'm hoping some insight into the Preamp's, Mic's, EQ's, Console etc would help me mix better.

Anyone willing to share?

Best,

Betuel

Not really sure. Just a general rule, VSL tend to be dry (ie turn off all reverb and eq=dry) so mic, micpre, A/D converter, VSL proprietary sample editor (ie edits, dynamics, mix, master) program for ouput by VIPro or VSP

Does everything go through the SSL in the control room? And what are the Pre-amps used? Clean or coloured? Im wondering about how much color is added, and weather I should add some SSL console emulation caracter to my other sounds. Those sort of questions. I would love some insightful info on all this being a geek that needs to know everything

Think really dry

Being that it is Vienna, forefather of Germany (and i am just guesing here)

Mic = U87direct Beyerdynamic/Sennheiser room or sterio

MicPre = Telefunken V72or76 or Manley

AD = Antelope, Apogee, Brown&Burr maybe Ferrofish

DAW = VSL propritary sample editor

Mix = Selfserve via VIPro or VSP

As I am trying to mix, accurate information is helpful. I know for a fact what microphones were used during the string session: 

Decca Tree LCR: DPA 4006

Surround: DPA 4011

High Stereo: AKG 414 als AB

High Surround: AKG 414 als AB

Close: Neumann KM184

VI1: M* OK FETCH T:1 done

ID: Flea12 as AB

Back: Sennheiser MKH8040 as Spots

VI2: MID: Sennheiser MKH800 as AB

Back: Sennheiser MKH8040 as Spots

VA:  MID: Sennheiser MKH800 as AB

Back: Sennheiser MKH8040 as Spots

VC:  MID: Sennheiser MKH800 as AB

Back: Neumann U87Ai as Spots

DB:  MID: Neumann U87Ai as AB

Back: Flea12 as Spots

 

I'm just after some more precise info in order to mix better. I use virtual microphones, consoles, preamps, compressors etc. You get the picture, for a more cohesive mix :-)

Note that I am talking about Synchron Stage recordings, not Silent Stage.

Hi Betuel,

Like the ones Slate advertises? Care to share the experience? I wonder if it's more than a snake oil.

Thanks,

Crusoe.

No not snake oil, the plug-ins sound very good and are so convenient to get the warmth of gear in the box. Their mic emulations are equally impressive, being able to change a microphone emulation on the fly is brilliant.
