Default My Recording rig + a little solo.

Well, i just picked up a Presonus Firestudio Project and got right down to recording some stuff. I still need another one to mic up the rest of my set and i need two more mics (I'm waiting for one to ship from ebay) but right now I'm just using two overheads and bass and snare mics.









I realized shortly after setting it all up that mic OH's were setup wrong but they're right now:)

Specs are:
Presonus Firestudio Project run into Cubase SX3
Overheads: Audio Technica AT-2020 (x2)
Snare: Shure SM57
Bass: Audix D6

When i get cables/clips and another firestudio the rest will be...
Rack toms: Audix D2 (x4)
Floor toms: Audix D4 (x2)

Also...heres a solo I just recorded for a competition at another forum.

For minimal mic'ing, the drums sound pretty incredible. The ECs (1s or 2s?) sound fantastic. I might actually pick those over those clear G2s.

Nice playing too, man.. and oh, nice kit!

they're EC2's.

Yeah as soon as i get a second firestudio i'll be setting up the tom mics. At the moment i have the four Audix D2's, one Audix D4 coming from ebay and i need another D4.

Thanks for the compliments =)

Do you want to use two mics on each tom? I guess I'm just confused as to why you don't use the empty four inputs on your current interface. Those reserved for band mates? Regardless, I like the new recording gear. Presonus makes some cool stuff. The clip sounds pretty good. :)

I know, seriously! I was debating the same head choices!!


good kit man. i like the color and the sound.. it's gonna sound even better when the other mics are on.. it sounds pretty decent already with the mics you have going.

is that an M birch or Pro M? I see that the bass mount is directly on the shell, so if those are M birch drums they sound WELL worth the money. And the recording sounds great, maybe some tweaking with the bass drum, but that's a very minor complaint, as it actually sounds pretty good! nice job

Wow sorry for being away for a while i actually completely forgot about this thread since i don't come here too often.

The other 4 inputs will be for mics but in order to mic all my toms (8/10/12/14/16 and an 18 coming soon) I'm going to need another firestudio (plus i dont have cables/clips for the tom mics yet) so i'll be able to run them all. The rest will be used for a possible hi-hat mic (although they already sound great) and most likely a snare mic on the bottom.

Yeah about the mics. How i had them is how you would place a small diaphragm condenser mic...like this one...



but i have side addressed condenser mics...which are like this



They're called side addressed because, like Tuxido said, they capture sound from the side instead of the top.

Again, thanks for all the compliments.

Heres another little thing i recorded when i tried out a different tuning on the toms. Don't mind the playing, it was really just to showcase the toms.

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page...songID=6178046

Note...these are not rotos. I tuned up my 8" really high to get a timbale-ish kind of sound (inspired by the youtube member geekusadrummer. Look him up, FANTASTIC player). I tuned up all the other drums as well...just not as much.

Wow for only having the four mics the sound in your first recording sounds sweet.

The toms in the second recording sound great, I really like the attack on the racks and the punch on the floors (though I'd tune the 14" down a bit).

Have you considered putting another 57 on the bottom of your snare? The sound from the top mic is really crisp, but to me it just lacks a bit of body.

yeah...as i said in my above post, when i get another firestudio, i'll be mic'ing up the bottom of the snare. It's just that the toms have sort of a priority over the snare reso so I'm trying to get them done first. I have almost all the mics (i got an audix D4 in not long ago...i just need one more and my second floor tom, which is at the store as we speak), and then after that i'll be getting another snare mic.

I just kinda got side-tracked by buying a guitar and bass because i wanna start writing/recording my own songs.

Then after the last snare mic i need a crash to replace my cracked AAXplosion and that will be the end of spending money on music stuff for a lllllllong time:)

Default Re: My Recording rig + a little solo.

Firestudio Project - $550 each (music store gave me $50 off though) (x2)
Audix D6 - $200
Shure SM57 - $100
AT-2020 - $75 each (x2)
Audix D2 - $100 each (x4)
Audix D4 - $100 each (x2)
Mic stands and clips - $20 each (x11)
Cables - $15 each (x11)

Total: $2535 plus tax

Thats for everything but the individual prices are there as well.

The price would be a lot higher but i already had studio monitors laying around the house, not to mention i got most of the mics off ebay for cheap.
