ACHIEVE CLARITY, PUNCH AND DEFINITION IN YOUR DRUM SOUND
“The challenge of drum recording is capturing a bunch of different tones that – on their own – might not sound fantastic, but overall form one big cohesive sound.”
A great drum sound is the core of a great mix. If your drum recordings sound fantastic, you’re off to a great start. If not, well… you’ll have to spend a ton of time trying to fix your recordings in the mix, or you’ll end up replacing the drums with generic samples altogether, losing original character of the band. Drum recording isn’t easy and there are many moving parts.
But what if you could master it? What if you were the best in your area for recording drums, and had bands actively seek you out to record with you?
Thats’s why we created this course.
Engineer Matt Weiss and session & touring drummer Matt Starr (Mr. Big, Ace Frehley, Beautiful Creatures) teach you how to tune your drums, choose the best microphones and show you a wide variety of miking techniques and placements, so you can achieve a full, punchy and well-defined sound that fits your song.
Even if you’ve never recorded a drum kit before, this step by step guide will give you all the tools and techniques you need and put you on the fast track to recording pro-sounding drums.
CAPTURE THE PERFECT DRUM SOUND FOR YOUR SONG AND STYLE
“The goal is to marry the technical side of drum recording with the creative idea of the music, so you can get the perfect sound for YOUR SONG.”
There are many different drum recording techniques and approaches and each of them will give you a different sound.
This course doesn’t only show you how to use them, but it goes into detail on how to choose the right miking techniques, depending on the song, genre and recording environment.
Come recording time, you’ll know exactly which techniques to pick to give you the drum sound you’re looking for.

Different mic placements allow you to tweak your drum sound a lot: Capture more or less room sound, change the width of your recordings, or fine-tune the amount of fullness, attack and resonance of your drums. Matt shows you various placements for overheads, room mics and close mics, and explains how they will affect your sound.
