If you’ve followed my recording videos then you know I’m a HUGE proponent of using overhead mics to capture the majority (or at least a large part) of your drum sound. I talk about it all the time…..and now I’m going to talk about it more! 🙂
Over the next couple of weeks I will cover 3 or 4 different techniques for recording overheads starting with mono!
I think using a mono overhead mic gets overlooked all too often. It’s such an effective way to capture a good drum sound. Plus there are other ways to capture a stereo image…but that’s for another video.
In this video we’ll take a look at how the height and placement of the microphone effects your sound.
