This is my latest composition that I recorded over the last week. As usual, I mixed it on headphones.
In contrast to some of my earlier recordings, I though I'd try out a different drum kit (courtesy of EZDrummer) and tried to sharpen my programming skills. I quite like the sounds -- seems quite 'live' but would be interested to hear what other people think.
Does it work?
Compositionally, the track is a mix of 5/4 and 4/4 time signatures.
I am currently using EZ Drummer as a plugin on Logic 9.
Does anyone have any tips on how to get a thudding 'kick' from the kick drum? I find i am either getting it buried in the low end, or it is distorting terribly!
Thanks for your advice!
I have concerns...
My drummer just ordered a Ludwig Keystone kit with the two large floor toms, and 26 inch kick drum. It seems this is geared towards live?. The kick is sealed i believe and looks like it comes with Evans G2 heads for all toms. He also got the Ludwig Black Magic snare already, the kit is custom and looks like its 6 weeks out. Just looking for suggestions on Micing this big beast. Looks like i may need to add a sound cloud above due to added dbs?.. Im using Audix D7 mics and Toft ATB preamps BTW.
Hello. I'm new here and this is my first post. I'd like to know how to get the largest, fullest sound I can get out of my drum kit. Right now, my kit's in a finished basement and the ceiling is 6' 8" high and the room is 12' x 16'. My 4-track and my cheap Radio Shack mics make my drums sound like they're made of paper plates, but they're all I have.
