Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

Yeah, the faders go from off to 0db, then up to +6. I'm recording at about -.5 from 0, so I think we're talking about the same levels - seems to work pretty good.

Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

I do my tracking in Cubase. I usually set the recording levels for each instrument to top out at just below the zero mark. That seems to get a good solid signal without clipping or being too thin. ...

Re: Left foot playing pulse

I've got the left foot thing too. Sometimes way more than I should though. I catch myself getting to exited and doing this heel and toe up thing. I call it "catching air" or "Deliverance Foot"...

Re: Billy Ward here!

Billy,

I purchased your video "Big Time." I really dig the analogy and philosophy of the clock gears, very effective for me. I also enjoy the angle of a visual artist with music. I must say...

Re: Floor Toms, why do we love them so?

Because (for me) doing simple rudiments between a 16" and 18" sound like a stampeed (especially in a mic'd live situation). And who doesn't like being run over by lots of large animals?

Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

Use the case as a trap? What a great idea! I also use a 24" kick with no dampening (besides an Emad), so I'm exited to give this a go. Thanks!

Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

I have an Audix F12 that went inside (as far as my limited stands would allow), and a SM58 for the outside. I only experienced the hollow sound on the snare during an experiment when I mic'd top and...

Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

Wow, I've never actually used overheads in a live situation, but I'll remember that for sure.

I have absolutely heard the phantom power through a dynamic, but maybe it's just the Firepod. Maybe...

Very cool, that's great to know Finn! I've usually just avoided the situation - now, it's on!

Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

I use the Firepod and LE also. I record with 8 mics on the drums simultaneousely so that shouldn't be an issue. In Cubase LE you have to turn on the VST input banks and make them all active (5...

Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

Hmmm, the two mic bit on the snare was an experiment and sounds kind of hollow. I wonder if the mics are out of phase like you mention. I'm new to this and don't really have a grasp of what "out of...

Re: RECORDING DRUMS - tips, questions, equipment, etc.

Yeah! Thanks DB, I was hoping ya'll would include this somewhere.

So my first question is about using two mics on a snare drum. I've experimented with a 57 on top, and and audix tom mic on...

Re: Suggestion for the site: Recording topic

Great thread! We definitely need a "recording your drums" section. I think lots of people here have valuable input to share- from 1 mic and a computer all the way to pro-efforts. It would be nice...

Re: Recording Thread

I also use the FirePod with a RNC stereo compressor into an iMac with Cubase LE. Nothing fancy, but I'm loving it! The compressor makes all the difference in the world on the kick and snare, and...

Re: THE BLACK PANTHER THREAD!!! for all BP snare fans and owners....

Thanks Stu! The guys I play with play pretty loud, so I like the punch. I'd really like the maple one yer talking about though.

Re: THE BLACK PANTHER THREAD!!! for all BP snare fans and owners....

Finally, I got a chance to record some sounds. Here's the hammered bronze snare with a coated G2 on top, hazy 300 on bottom, and a 42-strand wire. This was supposed to be about the snare, but I...

Re: THE BLACK PANTHER THREAD!!! for all BP snare fans and owners....

I'd love to try the maple and gold die-cas rim one too. I just played my first gig with mine in Seattle on Saturday night, and the snare was outstanding. Nice and loud, but not overbearing. After...

Re: THE BLACK PANTHER THREAD!!! for all BP snare fans and owners....

I know you're talking about a different Panther than I have, but I'll get some sound files up at some point (hammered bronze 6.5x14). I was hoping mine came with die-cast because I've never played...
