Has anyone recorded and mixed bodhran?
I am recording an album with my band for the first time and we are arguing over how the bodhran should sound. We can’t seem to find a way to explain it to the sound engineer who is mixing our CD. First, it sounded too out front because he put compression on it. Our bodhran player loved this, but being the melody player, I did not. Then, we took the compression off and now we can barely hear the drum. In fact, we lost almost all of the higher register of the drum. If anyone knows anything about this and can tell me exactly what to tell the sound engineer, please help!!!
