    Home Recording/playing/live tracking/mixing your own album

    Hello folks! I'm new here and I signed up after thinking deeply about my recent experience while bored in quarantine. The question I'm posing is pretty huge, so forgive me. First of all, I'm a total noob when it comes to recording, but last summer for a number of reasons (mostly money related) I...

    Roland TM-2, Drum Triggers and Cords

    Hi all, I am looking into buying a Roland Tm-2 but am a little confused about which cords I need to get to make my intended trigger setup work. I intend to use a Roland PD-8 Dual Drum pad, a mono snare trigger, and a mono bass drum trigger. Even though the TM-2 only has 2 inputs, I am...

    MIDI Sample Pad to use with SP404 sx

    Does anyone know of any sample pad devices that I can connect to my SP-404sx. The idea is to use this sample pad to trigger sounds from the SP-404sx. The sample pad doesn't need to have the capacity to hold sounds, it just needs to be able to be used to control the SP404s pads via MIDI. Ive...

    Micing drums?

    I stopped recording about 8 years ago and just recently decided to get back into it. I have a decent set of drum mics but they do not include any "overhead" mics. I ended up using two large condenser mics that I normally use for vocals but what I'm finding is that the snare comes out really...

    AT5045P on drums

    AT5045 sounds great on drums /overheads. These look like an excellent all round instrument mic. What do you think? The clips look easy to position and lock. Beautiful kit.

    Mixing double drums: How would you pan them?

    I'm mixing a project with two drummers on most of the songs, much like The Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers etc. I've been pondering my panning approach and, though I've kind of got it figured out, it would be useful to hear what others have done or think they would do with two kits before I...

    Drums - Solved?

    This is the drums/bass of the new piece ... nevermind the timing errors. I'll fix those ... but did the drums lose the room sound better? We employed close gobos and blankets. Thanks for the ears!

    Fxpansion's First Release Since Merger, 'Black Album Drums' Expanion

    Well, I think it's safe to exhale, my (our) beloved virtual drum company didn't ruin itself w their merger (yet). It seems they've continued their commitment to quality! Now to be fair this set was likely done before the merger, but it's a good sound. This thing sounds so much like the black...

    Taking the plunge.....tracking live drums

    Decided to finally utilize my Mackie board for recording, so spent the day tuning and mic'ing drums. I am sticking with a basic 4 mic setup (kick, snare, ohL,ohR), but am also close mic'ing the toms to mix them with the OH's. The OH's will be basically the room sound, natural reverb. Setup is...

    Noise Issues

    Hey everyone! I have a mix I'm trying to bring some life back into. I recorded it about 2 years ago and it's been one of my favorite songs to work on. I've learned a lot about mixing since then and want to fix the glaring issues I'm finding with it now. One mess I'm facing is that I...

    Recording drums: finding the sweetspot

    Hi guys and girls of the forum, This has probably been adressed here before, perhaps not so specifically... I did try searching but the vastness of the forum was overwhelming.

    Hey all, Happy New Year! Here's another article you might like to check out.... I recently recorded a nice vintage Gretsch drum kit from the early 70s for a cover of an old jazz standard. The sound we were after was 'vintage' to match the era of the piece. I used a minimal miking technique...

    The Industry Standard For Midi Drums

    Is there an industry standard VST for acoustic and electric Midi Drums/Percussion ? The bundled VST Percussion instruments that came with Cubase 7.5 are alright but I cant help but feel like they don't sound all that great. The majority of major label records released these days are using midi...

    Making the most of a small room

    I was mucking around today playing along with a track from the Antelope Zen demo stems from Sweetwater. I liked the room they originally recorded in and the original drummer was amazing. My room is 15 by 30 but has a low ceiling about 6 ft 3 I've made my room dead as the original surfaces...
