Drum recording is an ass to do sometimes. The placement of each mic, and of coarse the room your recording in makes a big differnce to the sound created.

I found a handy guide to microphone placement for all you peeps to look at http://www.saecollege.de/reference_material/pages/placement.htm

Pasha is going to use about 40 mics for his album recording... That what I call pain in the ass.
But it was nice to know that there are some helpful sources out there.
Thank you for sharing.

Yep, the recording will take place in 3 month (hopefully) I will post the pics and the mp3 samples as soon as they are available.

Thanks for all the attention!

Is the three months to set the mics up?  Smiley

I love different sounds from different techniques and it must be fantastic to have everything mic'd up in that way, so you can get the exact sound you are looking for.  

On the other hand, I love the sound that the likes of Glyn Johns get using a minimal mic set up.  See HERE

How long will it take to tune the entire kit?

Well it only takes one month to setup the mic's and another two month to run the cables!!!:o
Joke


Actually the problem is money...

And I have no idea as to how long will it take to tune the kid, cause its always tuned so all I have to do is to retune one, or two drums at a time and that doesn't take long...

My lack of time doesn't permit searching for your aforementioned recording, Pasha, now that it has been over three months and I hope all went well.  So could you guide me to the right page to upload your work so I can go right to it?

Sure... I mean for what it's worth...

It took me 9 recording days to record 6 songs as I actually had to completely rerecord 2 of them and than there were a couple parts I also wanted to rerecord in the others, but it is done and it is "on tape"...

The big problem is that we did not finish it as we kinda had to "fire" the vocalist without having a replacement for her...

I know it sounds stupid, but there was no other choice at the time it actually happened, so ... we got what we got there...

In any case you are welcome to check it out RIGHT HERE - and as I say it to all the people that I play it for:

It is completely not mixed, more than that I have played with some effects in the studio (even though the engineer told me "not to") and so some of the sounds are "pretty weird" but since it is an unmixed version, I hope it is ok...

Cheers.
