Posts Tagged ‘Meu Lindo’

So a few years ago, my daughter Leslie Rodriguez (then Leslie McClure) recorded her second CD in the studio. We did it before I had installed the vocal booth in the studio. I was trying some new tricks for that CD, focusing on a very “Americana” sound, but with a very soft, almost airy, and very open sound palette. We also scaled down the instrumentation to a minimum – so that the song, and her voice would be central.

I enjoy reading the mixing reviews in Recording Magazine, just to see what other studios are producing, and what other well-known studio engineers think of these mixes. I decided that I’d send one of Leslie’s songs, Meu Lindo to have reviewed. I never thought of it again. Then, a couple of months ago, I was reading the “review” section, and there it was! A very complimentary review of the recording. Here’s the link. Check it out.

Of course! They would pick up on the “room ambience” issue – pretty smart. If the vocal booth had been finished, this would not have been an issue.

In case you’re interested, Leslie now sings with the band Humming House.
