Marcel explains how to make sure all six snare mics are in phase, and how blending the different characteristics of the various mics allows you to minimise the need for EQ and the inherent phase distortion that is goes along with it.

Filmed in the Neve Studio at SSR London.

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