Here's a little video of the congas recording session. We got a pretty nice sound from some less than perfect congas. We put SM57's on each drum and put the AKG C4000 on omni just near the open door to the hallway. This gave me a nice blend of warm crisp close feel and live room sound. I spent a bit of time editing the best takes into a final comp, sounds pretty good in the mix.
I've also been mucking around with some 3D animations. Hope you all have a rad week!
