If you play, record or even listen to the piano, you’re a friend of mine!
You can have my notes and samples, and a couple of songs for free 🙂
Hey y’all – this is Aaron Trumm – thanks for coming by! Most likely you’re here because you saw my article “Caging The Beast” in Recording Magazine. If you didn’t, “Caging The Beast” is an overview of miking pianos, and it appeared in the May 2016 issue of Recording Magazine, so I encourage you to pick that up and give it a read – or read it here. 🙂
I’ve got some extra goodies here that kind of augment the article, a few samples from my testing session with Earthworks Audio’s PianoMic, a nice sized little e-book talking about those samples, a couple of piano songs that I just want you to have totally for free, and some notes on the production of those songs. I’ve included some screen shots so you can see my mix settings, too. Just stick your name and email in the form and grab the download right now.
As you know if you read Caging The Beast, I’ve got a lot to say about recording pianos, and that subject is just HUGE – it’s hard to fit into one article, and it’s impossible to hear stuff just by reading, so I thought I’d put together this download package just as a supplement, and even if you haven’t read the article, this little package should be fun if you are a recordist, pianist, or even just like to listen to some music, or want to know more about what I do, or in general what we recording artists do.
I’ve been recording now for almost 30 years, if you count the teenage early days, and ALMOST that long recording real pianos, which is really fun, inspiring and HARD – it can be frustrating at times, and I know that a lot of people find it super confusing, so when Recording Mag asked me to do an article on the subject, I felt pretty honored and I enjoyed writing it like crazy. I was also lucky enough to have Recording help me get a loaner of the PianoMic from Earthworks Audio which I talked about in the article and fell in love with. So, again, I’ve compiled my notes and samples from that testing session into this download package, which is TOTALLY FREE – I just want you to enjoy, get some more info, and get to know me, because I figure I’ll make some new friends this way.
So – enough out of me, man – stick in your email so I can deliver your package now – you’ll get it immediately. Then you can contact me (all my info is in the package) and let me know what you think!
