MIA Students in StarMount Studio

Led by Ken Hor, students from MIA (Malaysian Institute of Arts) had their arrangements played and recorded in StarMount Studio. Nothing is better than having your written works being materialize by seasoned musicians, playing it live and recorded in the studio. Students were excited and thrilled at the same time.

Its a great opportunity to be involved in a live recording situation, hear the texture of a recorded grand piano together with amped guitars and live drums.

Entire session was done with 6 mics, JZ V47 and Sennheiser  e902 on the drums (OH n Kick), AKG D112 on Ampeg, Sennheiser MD 421 on Fender and sE 4400a pair. All signals were transported by Analysis Plus Yellow Ovals cables.  Kept it simple and we love it! Especially the drums.  Fun Times :)

Its a learning experience for sessionist too..

Follow up on the success of "Gemersik Kalbu" and the theme song "Obsesiku" in TV3, Aqasha is back  in StarMount Studio for more tunes. Song selection is in progress and we believe that long awaited album will be meeting the fans soon. Here is the Aqasha with one of Faith Guitars new model Saturn Cutaway Electro Trembesi Series. We love the smooth highs, solid mids and warm bottom from this acoustic guitar. Versatile for both finger-style plucking and strumming.  Its fresh out of the case, let it settle for a while and we believe it'll open up more for recording sessions to come.
