Dungeon Crawler Game

I have recently taken on an unpaid project working as a sound designer on a dungeon crawler game. The game is being developed by team that go by the name of Cataclysm Studios.

Further updates to come as progress takes place!


Granelli Audio Labs G5790

The G5790 by Granelli audio labs is a Shure SM57 with a 90 degree angle. The reason for the creation was to tackle the bleed from the hi hat that is commonly heard through the snare mic, with the right-angle it allows you to utilise the null point  of the SM57’s cardioid pattern by positioning it towards the Hi-hat.

Granelli use a custom aluminum part that is acoustically-engineered to give a result that maintains the SM57’s familiar tone while giving engineers more functionality making it the perfect solution for reducing bleed when recording drums!. The price of the G5790 is $154.99 and just $10 more if you want the SM58 Mod. UK buyers will have import charges however Granelli offer a DIY conversion kit for just $57.90 that contains everything you need to convert your own SM57 or SM58.


You can purchase your own G5790 via Granelli Audio Labs

Behringer ADA8000

A great partner to the 003 Series to have in your rack is the ADA8000 from Behringer, with this 1U rack unit you can have an additional 8 microphone preamps sent digitally via ADAT  however limited to a sample rate of 48Khz.

ADA8000 Specifications

As a drummer the Behringer is an essential and affordable unit to be able to add an additional 8 inputs opens more options for recording drums even in your home practice space / studio. The Behringer ADA8000 is now discontinued however can be bought affordably online on second hand markets like eBay or Gumtree for around the price of £50 – £100.

Alternatively you could achieve the same results by purchasing a newer model such as the Behringer ADA8200 that can be purchased from reputable sellers such as Thomann.
