Recording Drum Room Mics: Mid/Side Configuration
I've been challenged in the last 19 months to create music VERY fast for video projects. I created a video showing the process I've been using to get better drums sounds using stock logic drum tones. I prefer recording drums with a real drummer however this has been a fantastic challenge in its own right.
P.S. If it is annoying for me to post videos in the forum I have no problem removing them:) These are the things in music that are exciting for me so I thought I would share it.
OK so I have a 29' x 29' room with 21' ceilings... what's your ideal drum placement?
What mic choices and preamps work best for you?
- snare top
I'm seeking help to determine the problem I'm having when recording a MIDI file from my electronic drum kit.
Alesis Crimson Mesh Head Electronic Drum Set
USB MIDI cable (direct from the ekit to my computer)
Sony Acid Pro 7
Line 6 POD Farm
Line 6 TonePort UX2
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, and we were quite pleased with the result. So I wrote it up with some photos and audio - thought some people here might find it interesting.
I'm kind of stuck with the new Audiosnap 2.0 of Sonar X3
It is suppose to allow to group the audio tracks transients so that the quantising stay phase coherent but I can't figure out the steps to achive that.
What's your better tool for quantising multitracks. (without manually move transients)
