Lion King touring cast members in the Conservatory’s Studio A/D
Lion King's cast recently visited Arizona's Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences Gilbert location to lay down tracks for a cast Christmas CD. The collection will contain songs from each of the nine Lion King companies touring worldwide. The Conservatory's setup allowed the 18 cast members to be recorded in two studios simultaneously: one in stereo and the other in 5.1. Gear used for the recording included the Holophone, three BLUE Bottle mics and two Pearl ELM-C rectangular capsule microphones. “Our Shepherd Boy,” written and produced by Lion King orchestra conductor Rick Snyder and co-produced by percussionist Eric McKain, was recorded to two synched Pro Tools|HD Accel rigs through Summit, SSL and OSA mic pre's.
