Drum Miking Techniques

Video Description

For the studio engineer there is no more complex a job than properly miking the drum kit. Join veteran recording engineer Less Camacho and accomplished studio drummer Jonathan Gorman as they demonstrate the best microphones and techniques for miking the drum kit in the recording studio. Les will demonstrate how to listen critically, how to find the "sweet spot" of each drum, what type of mic is best suited for each drum, how to "audition" and then fine tune the mic placement. Utilizing three different setups from entry-level microphones all the way to high-end microphones, Les shows you how to best capture the dynamics of the drum kit no matter what your budget is.
