A Simple, Step-by-step Process to Fix These Problems:

  • You want more control and confidence when you record drums.
  • You are new to recording drums.
  • Your drum tracks never sound exactly like you want them to.
  • You mixes sound "Off" because there is something wrong in your drum tracks.
  • You want better Left/Right balance in your drum tracks.
  • You have to record a huge drum kit with minimal mics.
  • You do not know how to get the right sounds when you record drums.
  • You are not sure how to record drums for multiple genres or styles.

What you will learn in this course:

  • Master a two-step method of recording drums that you can use in:
    • Any room
    • Any kit
    • Any genre.
  • Learn to completely control:
    • The stereo wideness of the drum kit
    • The mix of direct drum sound, to room sound
    • Make a small kit sound larger, or a large kit seem more focused.
  • Develop your ear to hear issues as during tracking, and fix them before you have to work around them in a mix.
  • Those that have no experience recording drums, will gain speed, consistency in your results, and confidence in yourself.

The Method is a two-step Process

Step 1

  • The Foundations of my recording method gets you 80% of the drum sound.
  • The Foundations give you a fantastic drum sound as a starting point with your recording projects.
  • This step takes hundreds of options that are difficult to execute, and waste time, and spells out which techniques give the best results quickly.

Step 2

  • The Modifiers makes up the last 20% of the drum sound.
  • Use the "Modifiers" to get any sound that you would like from the drums, which customizes the sound for the recording project's needs.
  • You can make very simple adjustments to alter the sounds of the kit. Just like how you understand that moving a mic on a guitar cab can make a huge difference, you can also make adjustments of the mics to get exactly the sound that you need.

What is Needed?

  • Any Experience Level
  • 4 - 8 Mics and Inputs
    • 8 Mics and inputs are recommended, but you can still complete the course with 4 mics and 4 inputs. (2 Overheads, Kick, and Snare Mic)
    • The course relies heavily on two overheads such as a pair of condenser mics.
  • Any drum kit
  • Any room

How:

  • A step-by-step process on drum recording. Total video content is about 2.5 hours.
  • You see everything that I do and hear the results that I get from a mics that are under $800. Most are $100 - $300 each.

Real Life Teaching

No Expensive Mics.

No Acoustically Designed Rooms

  • It's real life! Very few people have the "Perfect" rooms to record drums in.
  • It's about my step-by-step process, not about a perfect room and crazy expensive mics.
  • I don't pretend to be a fancy engineer with a big console in the back ground. I'm a normal dude, with normal drums, and I want to teach you what I know so you don't have to go through the struggle of terrible sounding drums.

Bonus - Personal Coaching and Assessment of Your Own Drums:

  • Personal assessment of your drums if run into trouble recording them, and exactly how to fix it. Just send in a few pictures of the drums, pictures of the room your recording in, and a recording of how they sound I'll reply back with step-by-step instructions.
    • I listen to your drum sounds personally
    • I review your photos of your drum set up and of your room.
    • I respond with step-by-step instructions to make improvements:
      • Microphone position recommendations
      • Room assessment and acoustics
      • Overhead recommendations
      • Phase considerations for stronger and fuller sound
