some tips for recording a great drum sound ..
i track, mix, master
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.
I have the share sm57 as an overhead and I can't get a good sound unless the gain knob on the Scarlett is turned all the way up and then when it is all the way up the rest of the kit sounds like mush.
The Audio-Technica 2020 on the bass drum sounds good.
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!
