Hello everyone! That's my first post! I'm collecting stuff, and reading databases, trying to create something similar to Studio Magik or Ultimate Sessions. Nothing commercial. And I have a question about which takes has been used on the final songs mixes. I have no info for that, only dates, location and takes recorded at the time. But, nothing for the ones used for the final mixes. Thanks everyone! Stay safe!
I've been wanting to learn more and more about studio engineering, mixing, and recording techniques, and have had multiple questions pop up in my head over these past weeks. One I've had in mind was, how was reverb implemented to Led Zeppelin's studio tracks? It was never really just one studio for them. For their first album, I figure it's just an echo chamber or plate reverb system at Olympic Studios, where it was recorded, but pretty much every album after has confused me, especially the albums following Led Zeppelin II. Plenty of their recordings were recorded inside the rolling stones mobile studio, which they took along with them from Bron-Yr-Aur, Headley Grange, and the rest of their travels, with songs being listed to be recorded in it from Led Zeppelin III all the way to Physical Graffiti. Now for such a minor detail that no one should really care about, from a producers standpoint, where would adding reverb fit into all of this? Did the mobile studio have it's own reverb system, which I'm guessing to be a plate unit, or were they all added in post at a separate studio. I've been looking into Led Zeppelin IV, where after the recording has been finished, the tracks were taken to Sunset Studios, but the masterings were found to be terrible, so they were taken to Island Studios. Would the remastering process include reverb, did they stick with the reverb that might've been recorded at Sunset studio's in their own echo chamber? Did the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio have it's own reverb system? Anyways, thank you for reading this nonsensical post worrying over reverb, and if you happen to have any information, please share it, thank you for your time.
Hello, I'm a new member and this is my first time posting. I have been following the forum for quite some time and decided to finally join. Here recently I have been scavenging looking for any info on Jimmy Page's guitars. There is obviously info to go around about his Les Paul(s), Tele, Dano, etc. There is even a substantial amount of info on the Harmony Sovereign and the J-200 that he borrowed for Led Zeppelin I. It is known that Jimmy used a Fender XII for Stairway to Heaven in the Studio as well as When The Levee Breaks. However, there is hardly any info regarding his acoustic 12 string guitars. He didn't use them very much from what I can hear, but it is definitely safe to say he did. Led Zeppelin III's Tangerine, Gallows Pole, and even Hey Hey What Can I Do all have an acoustic 12 String. I have found info about a couple of 12 strings he used live for Tangerine (Giannini GWSCRA12-P Craviola and a EKO Ranger XII). So my question is: Does anyone have any info regarding Jimmy's use of acoustic 12 strings in the studio? ANY information (whether it be interviews or whatever) is welcome.
