A brilliant, very deep discussion about microphone choice, positioning and phase when recording a drum kit.
Marcel demonstrates the Glyn John method – a means of setting up overheads so that the kick and snare end up in the centre of the stereo image.
Creating a realistic stereo image by panning the hi-hat and toms to match the stereo image from the overheads.
Marcel delves deeply into phase aligning the whole drum kit. This is a must-see!
Showing how an accidental setting on a HPF filter can damage the recording, Marcel chooses the best position for the Rack Tom mics.
With four mics on top and two on the bottom, Marcel explain how to get all six in phase for a great snare sound.
EQ for free! Marcel uses four in-phase microphones to achieve a certain amount of tone control without reaching for the EQ knobs.
Marcel shares his brilliant multi-microphone drum recording technique, all based on getting the phase relationships right.
