Recording Piano: Part 1

At GSI Studios New York [Video Feature] By JG Harding
Published January 2019

Focused primarily on jazz recording, GSI Studios is an artist-run facility in Manhattan and one that takes piano recording very seriously.

Watch the first of our two-part video series, where Head Engineer Josh Giunta lifts the lid on his process for capturing the piano so that it sounds as lifelike as possible. Along the way, learn how he deals with phase issues, how he chooses his mics, how he decides where to position them and how this can all change dramatically from one pianist to the next.
