THE BEST DRUMS FOR YOUR MONEY

Kenny Gioia multi-platinum producer and engineer is back with yet another power packed assortment of tutorials, this time showing you how to get killer drums sounds on a tiny budget that just about anyone can afford. Get ready to bang out big beats that won't break the bank.

Kenny starts with an introduction and goes through the setup for recording live drums with only one or two microphones. Next, he talks about the different types of mics and pre-amps to use, as well as proper dampening techniques for the drums.

Kenny then looks at recording levels and how to avoid phase issues as well as how to track the actual drum performance. Kenny switches to the computer after the takes are recorded and shows you how to edit them with both a warp based editor and a hit point type editor.

Lastly, Kenny shows you how to add samples manually and with a trigger type plug-in to quickly create huge, natural sounding drums that will rock the house.

If you need to record your own drums and don't have a million dollar mic locker and pre-amp stash, this collection of video tutorials will get you there on a dime! Checkout "Recording Live Drums on a Budget" today.

    1. When did you start dabbling in music?

    I've played an instrument since I was 10. Drums and Trumpet. I'm 40 now. I can play a little bit of any instrument. Master of none. Rock bands most of my life.

    2. What training have you had?

    I was taught trumpet classically from grade school up until I graduated high school. I went to Five Towns College for engineering and learned that you can't just learn this stuff from school. I did graduate though.

    3. When did you get into recording?

    I've been recording since I was 15. Two cassette players wired to a Radio Shack mixer. Eventually I got an 8 track reel to reel by Fostex. I've used just about every DAW and I started using them before they even recorded audio. Vision and Performer were just MIDI sequencers at the time. Before they became Studio Vision and Digital Performer. I got studio jobs because I knew computer MIDI and most studios didn't. I eventually moved up to Sound Tools which was two track. Then Pro Tools made a Audio Media III card which let you have 4 inputs. Gradually I moved up from there with Pro Tools D24, Pro Tools Mix to HD.

    4. People you have worked with/for?

    5. Why are you so good at training people?

    Hmmm. My Mom always said "Self Praise Stinks". I think it's because I have no ability to talk like a professional announcer, or plan out my teachings. So I teach as if you were sitting next to me. Pretty much off the cuff. I think that engages people more. We're so used to hearing everything done so properly and planned out with unnecessary explanations and proper wording that the brain will actually ignore most of it. Your brain tunes it out like you're back at your desk at school. But if the teacher grabbed you aside and just explained it to you, I believe you'd get more out of it. That is what I try to do.
