My quartet Rendezvous had the pleasure of recording a 7 song EP in October of 2009 here in Toronto. My older sister Sarah, a Ryerson University media student, was able to secure us some studio time as well as coordinate and co-produce the session along with myself.
"Go the Distance" is from Disney's "Hercules" and was written by Alan Menken. It was adapted for barbershop by Aaron Dale and made famous by the quartet "Vocal Spectrum". Danny transcribed the recording in the winter of 2008 and it has become a crowd favourite at our shows!
Bass : Calvin Frank (mrcalvinfrank)
Baritone : Andrew Kesler (andrewkesler)
Lead : Brodie Cuff (brodiecuff)
Tenor : Danny Fong (daniscool99)
Working in the booth along with my sister was our good friend and amazing drummer Tristan Henderson (check him out in my videos of "Nardis" and "In the Beginning"). Tristan engineered the session and did most of the mixing along with myself. The final mixes of all the tunes were completed in early February and I've been slowly working away on the videos when i've had time.

Blue Bottle (Danny), Neumann TLM 103 (Brodie), Neumann TLM 49 (Calvin), Blue Berry (Andrew)
NOT SHOWN: 2 Apex 435's placed in opposite room corners for Stereo effect, and a large diaphragm condenser mic placed high up in the center of the room. Note: The room was TERRIBLE for barbershop singing, which was a bit of a drag, but we did it anyways.
Recorded and mixed on Protools 8. Video shot with some random nice camera (it was dark in the room so I lightened it so it looks kinda grainy). Video edited with Final Cut Pro. NO PITCH CORRECTION OF ANY KIND USED! What you're seeing is what you're hearing. EQ, Compression, Limiting, Reverbs (long and short) and other such plug-ins used, as well as volume automation.
*Don't forget to rate and subscribe and comment and all that. We'd really appreciate if you'd share this with your friends and family because we don't make any money doing this and it takes lots of work, so getting some extra exposure helps out a lot!*
Thanks, and enjoy!
