Los Angeles, CA (www.zeromind.com) - Zeromind is currently hard at work at LA's Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, CA. with producer/engineer Dave Schiffman (Nine Inch Nails, System of a Down, Audioslave). Schiffman is working with the band producing new tracks for the band's upcoming all-new album, "What's in Your Mind.' The U.S. release date is set for September 5, 2006 on Powerslave Records.

Dave Schiffman Tech notes: What do you like about Paramount? THE DRUM ROOM IS LIVE BUT VERY CONTROLLED. WE WERE ABLE TO GET A BIG PUNCHY SOUND WITHOUT THE DRUMS GETING LOST IN THE ROOM

What was the Type and make of board? WE MONITORED THROUGH AN SSL J SERIES BUT I USED ALL OLD NEVE MIC PRES PLUGGED DIRECTLY INTO PROTOOLS. THE CONSOLE WAS STRICTLY FOR PLAYBACK

The way you recorded the drums for the band was all new to them. What type of microphones did you use and what did you utilize in the board to get that great drum sound? MY DRUM SET-UP IS PRETTY SRAIGHT AHEAD. A MIC ON THE FRONT OF THE BASS DRUM (FET47) AND INSIDE(421) ON TOP OF THE SNARE(SM57) AND THE BOTTOM(441). EACH TOM IS INVIDUALLY MIC'D(421) AS WELL AS 2 SETS OF OVERHEADS NEAR(67S) AND FAR(COLES) AND VARIOUS AMBIENCE MICS(DPA,U47) AROUND THE ROOM. I TEND TO DO ALOT OF BLENDING OF MICS RATHER THAN GO FOR THE EQ.

What Type and make of mic(s) were utilized for vocals? ON CHRIS I USED AN SM-7 THOURGH A NEVE MIC PRE WITH A DISTRESSOR FOR COMPRESSION AND ERIC AND LEO SANG ON A TUBE 47 THORUGH A NEVE MIC PRE WITH AN 1176 FOR COMPRESSION AGAIN VERY LITTLE EQ USED ON EITHER

Any special set-up for recording guitars and bass.... unique mics or special tools used in the process? AGAIN- PRETTY STRAIGHT FOREWARD- A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT MICS ON THE CABINET (SM57. SENN 409) THORUGH NEVE MIC PRES AND A LITTLE COMPRESSION WITH HEAVY SOUNDS THEY KIND OF COMPRESS THEMSELVES.

Any thoughts on the sound of the band. VERY AGGRESSIVE BUT MELODIC AT THE SAME TIME THEY HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF A HOOK AND CHORUS MELODIES.

Any new gadgets that would be interesting to gear heads out there? NOTHING NEW. MICS, MIC PRES, COMPRESSORS THEY DON;T MAKE THEM LIKE THEY USED TO. - LOL
