Live Drum Recording

Live Drum Recording

Live Drum Recording is always a challenge. The best part is placing the microphones is the key thing. Because it can lead to phase cancellation or creating a bad sound which you might not like in your project. But many of them has asked me which mic to select for what drum and how to place it?

Well, its not about your costly microphones, its about your kit, your Room and how good are you at placing your mic to get THAT tone in your song. The important thing is recording the Drum kit is getting a good GAIN STAGING and what Pre-Amps you use, it need not be a costly pre-amp, but a industry standard one is always recommended to get a good descent sound in your project or song.

Its not that you should keep 8 mics as standard rule of the thumb for a kit. I have recorded a entire whole Drum kit just with ONE MIC in my studio. Cant believe it? Its sound awesome!
