Clinic is a new art-punk band that uses lot of melodica. its an instrument with uses very specific frequencies, i dont think that you will need any special treatment for it to sound good in a mix.

I basicaly use Reverb , thats obvious, I think reverb is the basic coating any sound need.

but depending on how I wanna use the melodica , each track is a new challenge I think I can use delays, flange , phase, anything! Bring it on! hehehe

yes delay and reverb are the staples for me...
I like the sound of mel a bit back in the mix, using a larger room/hall reverb compared to the drums and etc

of course u can go mad with the phaser etc...

I find its one of the easier things to sit right inna mix myself, but Im no expert :)

Anyone any tips / ideas for prevent the key presses being recorded? I can hear the clicking of the keys even over the notes especially when playing chords.

Greetings,

you should try to put your mic in a position where the key-clicking isnt to loud(under the melodica).

Here is what i did: (I dont play the melodica directly through the mouthpiece but through an air-tube..) I built myself a construction witch is like a wooden box under the melodica. The upper side of the box is open and there the melodica fits almost perfectly. On the side of the box there is also a smaler opening where you can put your mic when recording.. with this costruction i dont have any keyclicks when i dont want them...

But also i think that sometimes its a nice rootsey effect to hear the key-clicks..

P.S. nice music with positive vibe on your myspace, hope to hear some melodica on there soon..

One Love Inna City
