In this video tutorial Pro Tools Expert team member Dan Cooper shows you how to recreate Tony Visconti's famous three microphone production technique used in the recording of David Bowie's Heroes.
Traditionally this production technique requires three physical microphones, some hardware noise gates and a large recording space – Dan shows you how to recreate this in Pro Tools using plug-ins bundled with Pro Tools and one source track recorded with a single microphone.
