Hey guys, here's my deal... I played in bands from the mid-80's through the mid-90's, until I developed hyperacusis... you can read about what hyperacusis is at Wikipedia. In the wake of my illness I had to quit playing for about twenty years. Nowadays my ears are MUCH better, but still not 100% and I have to be very careful of the sounds (volume and tone) I subject them to. In my middle age we are "getting the band back together" to record some new stuff. We'll be recording in my drummer's basement studio. Because of my hearing disorder I have to come up with some workarounds from the standard recording techniques... I need to avoid the drums, and I can't use headphones to track. So my plan is to keep it simple. Here are my thoughts: I'll record vocals and electric guitar live with my drummer acting as a live click track, providing a beat on maracas, or tambourine or tapping lightly on a tom or something. I play electric while I sing (strumming etc), with my small amp in the next room, miked. I'll be able to sing along with the guitar and there should be minimal bleed. Then drummer and bass overdub onto these basic tracks. If I need to do any guitar overdubs, I can run DI into the DAW, so no mics are involved, and no need for phones. Does this make sense? Are there any obvious better workarounds I'm not thinking of? I'm super excited to record again, but also a little worried. I need to keep my ears healthy. I think this should work though. Thoughts? Thank you!
