No Artificial Reverb For La Dispute

Posted by - 10:57 AM on 09/02/14
David Weiss over at SonicScoop writes about the decision to allow no artificial reverb on La Dispute's Wildlife.
Like many feats of engineering, the “no reverb” rule came not by design but as a matter of natural course, starting at the initial sessions in Chicago. “We had miked the drums in the live room, and the room mics that were in there were set up for talkback,” Pedulla recalls. “Then the guitarist was in there to be next to his amp, and we started realizing, ‘This sounds cool.’ The parts needed this ambience, and sounded really good with that sound that you don’t get from close mics.

ROTH is an great record but easily the weakest thing La Dispute has done. Hoping they keep cuts from it to a bare minimum at Riot Fest. You can't play a set without "Bury Your Flame" and then toss in ROTH songs with a straight face.

If it's been posted before, I don't care, because I doubt I would have read it then but I'm super interested now

This is really cool. I knew it was tracked without artificial reverb, but reading the details is a really nice touch. I've actually been looking into different tracking methods for my band recently, and though we're using reverb pedals etc, were checking out different sounding rooms for different textures and stuff. Once you get into it, tracking can become a lot more experimental and rewarding.

I feel like people are thinking that this article posted was to make them look "cool." Really, it's just a neat look into some of recording techniques the producers and engineers used for their album. I'm always open to learning some new stuff about recording, so I liked this article. Pretty interesting read for musicians and people who are interested in recording... maybe not so much for the average music listener.

This is the equivalent of "why is this news?".
