Recording Drums: Mic Choice, Positioning And Phase | Soulsound

Marcel speaks about all the choices and considerations when deciding on which mics to use.  Whether the mic is dynamic or condenser, large or small diaphragm, and when you might want to take advantage of the proximity effect.  All with the aim of faithfully reproducing a realistic sounding drum kit. Filmed in the Neve Studio at SSR London.

This masterclass is best listened to on a good pair of headphones or quality studio monitors
