Steel tongue drum with distortion effect
Below is a Logic Pro session run down of how the following audio file was mixed.
The initial recording was done Inside the drum using a Crowley and Tripp Naked Eye Ribbon microphone
The same recording was then copied to three different tracks.
The first two channels are mixed together using different compression and EQ settings. The third is strictly the distortion effect (with EQ) and the channel is muted until the effect is desired.
