I would like to know everything about doms drums. I know they are tama rockstars, i know the sizes but i would like to know the colour is and what hardware and cymbals he uses. I have heard may different cymbals being talked about but i want to know his exact set up.
I couldn't find one so I made one, merge if needs be. When i'm recording, I generally use what's available and most convinient. I'm a lazy recording engineer basically. I won't get the tape measure out when placing mics, and I use slightly random mic choices sometimes. The other day we recorded a rehersal, DI bass, guitar cab mic, kick, snare, 2 overheads. I put an AKG guitar cab mic on the kick drum, and a really shit kareoke style mic on the guitar cab. Both of these slightly weird choices worked better than ever! I've never had such a punchy guitar tone before. So, odd coincidences can give you new options. But, do I need to get the tape measure out? I've been thinking of trying the "recorder man technique" on drums. Do you follow a set of rules you know will work? Or do you just stick a mic in front of an instrument and press record? Or somewhere in between?
Share your remixes, sampling tips and tricks, software you use etc in this thread. I'll start, here is a track I made using samples from "Eleanor Rigby" by The Beatles, "Release The Beast" by Breakwater, "Fire" by The Young Punx and "Technologic" by Daft Punk (a "mash up" if you will) - http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?eywtxjd0tdd We could also use it as like a Wheres Wally? but with samples PS: Inb4 everything ever
Mixing is a totally different problem to recording, and so we could do with a seperate thread.... I'm working on an album at the moment for my band creep joint. The drums sound great, and bass is my forte, however, i've recorded way too much guitar. 2 close mics and one distant condensor on every guitar take. 2 takes on Tele bridge, 1 take on Tele mixed brige+neck, 1 take on (basically) an LP. Then there's individual takes (still using 3 mics) for effects like octaved guitar, delay guitar. Then i've recorded some acoustic take of the Tele at home (which sounds amazing). Basically I now have one massive mushy mess of electric guitar. I know that people like to layer up guitars a lot, so my thinking was that it wouldn't sound that bad, and it doesn't, but it's just not biting through the mix. What would you do?
