“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.
