This is the first track for my next album. This song was a collaboration between an old school buddy who now lives in London and myself.
Alan is a good friend from our school days where we played together in a band back in the 70's.
Our old school band had a reunion in March this year where we recorded one of our songs. The song was written in 1973.
some tips for recording a great drum sound ..
i track, mix, master
I hate to do this. I have to. I want to mic my drums. So here it goes...
I have a Shure Sm57 as an overhead mic.
I have an Audio-Technica At2020, (Which I'm cleverly using as a bass drum mic.) I might try to use it as an overhead.
And I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2.
So for years now, at least since DAWs have given us the ability to move audio files around by infinitesimal amounts within a time line, I've both read and talked to other engineers about time aligning the overhead drum mics to the Snare and Kick...
I know there's also software available that can apparently time align those mics/tracks, although I've never used it.
next weekend i want to record a drum kit (death metal). I have the following microphones:
- 2x Sennheiser MD 421
- 1 pair of Oktava MK-012
- 2x AKG D190C
- 5x Beyerdynamic M69N
- 1x Audio-Technica AT4040
Which mic should i use for what?
about every tip I would be happy
Thank you very much!
Hello, I am looking for recommendations/opinions on drum mics. I currently have two AT2020s for overheads and an SM57 for the snare. I will be buying two MD421s for my toms. (I use a 4 piece drum kit.) I am leaning towards the E602 for the kick, but want to know if there are any other recommendations.
Hi guys and girls, it's been a while... good to be back. So, after a long recording road I finally have the money to purchase gear to record drums.
