When I first started out as an engineer, I used to struggle heavily with Drum Recording.
The whole process was confusing to me, there were just so many variables!
I was unsure where to place my mircophones in order to achieve an accurate, punchy and 3-dimensional capture of the kit.
But even worse: I felt that – with the little and inexpensive equipment I owned at the time – I would NEVER be able to achieve the huge recordings I was looking for – no matter how hard I tried.
Can you relate?
Bear with me, there’s good news!
As my career developed, I was blessed to work with the amazing producers (Shelly Yakus, Jack Douglas) who had recorded my favourite albums.
When they told me about their drum recording process, I couldn’t believe it!
It turns out that many of the sounds I admired had actually been tracked on highly minimalistic setups: Using few microphones and some of them were even tracked in completely untreated rooms!
How did they do it?
By focusing on drum tuning, great performances and outstanding micing technique!
This course will teach the techniques professional engineers use to do all 3 of these things.
So you can achieve outstanding recordings in your studio as well!
