Do you review this battery, what brand could it be?
How many microphones do you use?
What system was used (preamplifiers and converters)?
Is it a battery that could go on a Professional Album?
I will write below with what it was recorded, in what place and what battery it is.
Well, either it's a very mechanical drummer or it's a midi programmed drum played via a VSTi.
No nuances in the HiHat.. It's very rare a real person would play like that..
So which VSTi is hard to say.. Many sound very good. I suspect Superior Drummer or Addictive drums.. maybe..
Could it go on a record ? Probably Yes.
It depends on the context, how it's mixed and what other instruments are in the song.
I mean, rap and dance album are still done with a 30yo beat box sounds (808)
Humm, interesting.. It was played very even regarding dynamics.. So congrat on that if it was what you were aiming for !!
All in all I think that what counts is the context of the song. The rest is a question of taste.. ;)
Thanks Pcrecord for participating in this game.
Blind comments are very useful, because I can understand if I am doing a good job or if I am making mistakes.
18 microphones were used for recording:
- 3 Rode NT2 first series above the drummer.
- 2 Akg 414 on the sides of the battery.
- 1 Akg D112 inside the bass drum.
- 1 Shure beta 52a outside the bass drum.
- 1 Rode NT2 first series one meter from the bass drum.
- 1 Rode M5 on the top of the Tom.
- 1 Rode M5 on the top of the Floor Tom.
- 2 APEX 460 valves at about 2.5 meters from the battery.
- 1 Samson C02 on the UP snare drum
- 1 Sennheiser E604 on the high snare
- 1 Shure beta 58a under the snare drum
- 1 Shure SM57 on the hi-hat
- 1 Samson C02 Charleston
- 1Samson C02 on the Ride.
All the microphones went from the preamplifiers of a Machie 32.8 and then to the Digidesign 96 i / o.
Except for the two Apex tube microphones which went through two Neve preamplifiers, but always in the 96 I / Os.
All done in my home studio.
