The Collars

I recorded the Collars' single Office Boy, alongside their bonus track Wait Until Tomorrow using a SSL desk and a Zoom H4N Pro, which allowed me to use the mobility of the Zoom to capture the sound within the live room. We recorded in a live ambient style, to help the band relax as this was their first studio experience, allowing them to feed off eachothers energy. 

We added further bass and guitar layers to the main live style recording to gain the depth of a typical studio sound. Layering and comping the vocals seperately helped to get a clean sound for mixing, to prevent the tracks feeling 'live' and ensure they had studio quality.
