  3. Nightowl427272 says:

    This show just blows my mind. Route a low-range vocal’s reverb send through a pitched-up harmonizer? I would have never though of that. Awesome! I’m only on Episode 5 so far but I’m going to watch every single other one…

  4. TheShaunRyan says:

    haha no short cuts folks. Like all professions put the work and doors will be presented. then you have to figure out how to open them.

    Is this court-ordered community service or something? Did Pensado plea down a murder rap or something? Such thoughtful shows and outstanding guests. Awesome, and thank you.

  15. BloodShotNow says:

    Ray J sounds so gay. I hope there’s a tutorial where Pensado cover’s a Rock Song. THere’s a reason The Beatles Sold the MOST ALBUMS of all time and T-Pain didn’t

  16. SwitchUpBroadcast says:

    awesome thanks!

  17. Colin Fichman says:

    what is that crazy light on the desk @8:40 ?

  18. VenVile says:

    You guys ROCK!

  19. Downbeat1984 says:

    that was stereo btw and i used a 414 as figure 8 and a beta 57 on top for drum over heads and it was amazing

  20. Downbeat1984 says:

    For wider stero sounds you can use mid side: Have a figure 8 for your 180 degree pick up and place a cardioidon top to capture the front side. To decode in a daw, sinply have 2 audio channels each dedicated to the figure 8 mic (pan hard left) and the cardioid (pan in middle), duplicate the figure 8 track and insert an eq or gain plug in or any eith phase reverse, hit the phase button ont he duplicated track and pan it hard right, soudns amazing if both mics are drasticlly different sounding
