In our studio we use high quality Rode and Audio Technica large diaphram condenser mircophones connected to our DAW via a Focusrite Scarlet 4i4 Digital interface.

Our flagship microphone is the Rode AT 2000 omidirectional.

Its the perfect microphone to capture the detail of the band singing around a single microphone.

Couda Been Live

Covid down-time was a good opportunity to record our latest album. Couda Been Live is an unadorned recording of some of our favourite covers. Without extra harmonises, extra instruments, and ubiqudous vocal tuning,  Coulda Been Live is what you get at one of our live gigs.

'Couda Been Live' is a compilation of covers with an orginal thrown in (Loyalty)

To be able to release this album at an affordable price of $15 we have chosen not to use commercial media production. Combined with technology changes that are seeing the decline of CDs and we have decided to release this album in a USB stick format plus with limited supply of hand burned CDs. Rest assured the recording production is still high class and the USB stick will come with compressed files in standard Apple itunes format (AAC/M4a) plus a folder of high quality lossless files in Apple Lossless ALAC file. Other formats available on request.
