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.

Très bon tuto
Rapide et bien expliqué. En revanche pour rester dans la logique du tuto et pour une session d'enregistrement avec un petit budget j'espérais avoir un tuto qui utilise un DAW open source (comme audacity ou autre), idem pour les plugins. Cela ne modifie en rien la portée des explications, mais ça aurait permis de rester cohérent avec le titre et de montrer à tous que c'est réalisable avec d'autres outils que des outils professionels.

Very well explained. It turns out you don't need tons of expensive mics and an acoustically perfect room to make a great live drum track.
