The proof is in the Performance

....followed closely by the recording of that performance.
As I continue to work with Krinsky on mixes, the silver thread through a production like this has been the performance of the musicians. I have great takes from all the players on these compositions.
Excellent gear and engineers is paramount.
Steve Weiss at Creation Audio and Adam Krinsky at Bellows provided that for me.
Next, you have to capture that performance and likely edit it to work in the production.
Miles Hanson at Creation handled the string, piano and low brass tracking and editing.
This was the setup for recording the String Quintet:
High Strings - (2) Neumann TLM 170’s MDC condensers into (2) Sony MXBK - M131

Cello - (1) Shure KSM 44 LDC into (1) Groovetube VIPRE
