Jaime Gomez Arellano

 

Mike Exeter headed up the M1 to visit Jaime's new Orgone Studios in Bedfordshire. This video runs just under 10 minutes and hopefully you'll get a good flavour of what the new studio and Jaime is about.

 

The new studio is based in a converted World War Two radio station in a very attractive countryside location. Space is huge and the sound of the room is lovely with an isolation area and kitchen it's the perfect tracking facility which features SSL's AWS 948 console and more Marshall amps than we've seen in many years. The focus of Jaime has been to provide excellent choices of drums and guitar cabs rather than get superfulous signal processing - getting the sounds right at source is key.

Special thanks to Mike Exeter for taking the time out to record this feature!

 

 

Jaime Gomez talks with Russ Russell

Part One of our special feature with top Metal producers Jaime Gomez and Russ Russell recorded at Parlour Sound Studios in Northamptonshire, UK. This is the first part that looks at the choices of guitar amps and microphones plus how they got started in the dark art of Metal producing.

 

PART TWO - Click to watch the conversation about long studio hours

PART THREE - Click to listen in to their chat about handling band politics

 

 

We met up with two great producers well known for their metal production to discuss recording bands, mixing, techniques and more. Further videos will follow covering many topics so check back in over the next few months.

 

In this 35 minute video Russ Russell starts the conversation with Jaime Gomez talking about how he got started. Jaime tells us about the very modest set-up that he started with and how that's led to amassing a huge amount of guitar amps. Both agree that selling old equipment's never a good idea.

 

We move on to guitar recording techniques, not so much mic placement but more the approach in setting up. We move to microphone choices and then on to the subject of compression.

 

The next video will cover long studio hours and not getting in a rut. Later sections will look at the subject of what production is and what it involves, from band politics to musical and creative input.

 

Special thanks to Parlour Sound Studios for giving us access and to both Jaime and Russ for sparing their time!
