Here’s what I call a ‘kitchen cupboard’ recording I did of the Arctic Monkeys RU Mine at my little studio setup here in Mallorca! ‘Kitchen Cupboard’ because the cupboards were pretty bare but you just make do with what you’ve got! For example:

  • SM58 Beta mic for vocals.
  • No electric guitar at the point of recording so it’s the Taylor GS Mini acoustic guitar through an amp.
  • I don’t have the fancy sample libraries here so just using my Roland RD700 bank of sounds and a few of the ones that come with Cubase 8.
  • I didn’t have a bass player or drummer on hand so everything you hear is played or programmed, produced mixed and mastered by me! Gotta use what you’ve got, even if it’s not a lot! Hope you like it!
