Recording Overheads PT1: Mono

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

Stereo Room Micing Techniques: Mid/Side

    We’ve been on a room micing kick lately and I want to finish it off with one of my favorite configurations. The Mid/Side configuration! Mid/Side is extremely versatile. First off the “mid” mic is actually a great mono room mic. If all else fails you’ll end up with a nice sounding mono room

Recording Drums w/1 Microphone

    I know what you’re thinking. Do we really need to talk about recording drums, or any instrument for that matter, with 1 microphone again? Yes.

Building A Drum Sound pt4!

    In our final installment of “Building A Drum Sound” I’m replacing the mono overhead with a stereo spaced pair. This isn’t your typical spaced pair however.

Building A Drum Sound pt2 Is Up!

  In “Building A Drum Sound pt1” I focused on getting a complete drum sound with only 2 microphones. A mono overhead and a mic in front of the kit. Those 2 mics produced a very nice, full, and accurate drum sound. They work on their own but they also give us a strong foundation

Building A Drum Sound pt1

    “I put a mic on every drum. Why doesn’t it sound good?” I’m sure at some point we’ve all asked ourselves that question. I know I have! Either it just didn’t sound good or it was completely the wrong sound for the music. Building the “right” drum sound is about more than just
