Drum Micing Basics

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

Introduction This article was written before digital audio workstations and deals with the fundimentals of miking and submixing a drumset for live performance and home recording. I never met a drummer who didn't know how they wanted their drums to sound, and really that's an advantage, it's just a matter of translating the sound in your head to tape. Remember, the best microphones are not going to make a bad sounding drum sound good, get your sound happening at the source first.
