Anyone here, besides me, play and record drums?
My son has been playing, which is in turn, teaching me a bit.
And actually, recording drums is actually my favorite part of the entire recording process.
I think recording drums, successfully, is maybe the most rewarding part of the whole process.
I agree. Totally!
I seem to recall that Stan is also a tub-thumper…
Yep, though I don’t get to play as often as I like because I rely on my band’s drummer letting me use his kit and it’s usually set up the wrong way round for me.
I’ve been know to abuse a drum set.
Speaking of drums, did you guys really let me get away with the description I put for this category? haha
I did! I mean, ivory? Really? The only thing these days more rare than recording real drums is someone recording a real piano.
haha! True. I’m open to other names I was trying to give it a name that suggested that it wasn’t “only” guitars
It doesn’t have to be cute. You could just call it “instruments”…
yes i am also a drummer infact i just bought a new set for xmas a dw peerformance 6 piece my old ser has seen some years and it still sounds good and does the job it was time to upgrade.
this is my setup atm… 3 AKG P170 for stereo oh and one for the hats and a shure pga52 for the kick, then I have 6 redhats on the snare toms and kick this is going to a alesis dm5 midi into a scalett I818 as well as the mics into my laptop with reaper it records easy and i have a templete setup so when i transfer to my main pc its painless. i just purchased a kelly suremount for the kick to go in my new set
**looking at monitors
That may be the coolest mix desk I have ever seen!!
i just used them to play music to jam too with…lol and listen back to the ruff mix of drums.
this is my mix desk
ty holster ill post some of the new set when i get it, it supposed to arrive Thursday and i have to work Friday so it might be a couple of days of setup and clean and organize
Awesome! Looking forward to it!
I actually took up the drums about a year ago, been very busy teaching myself and scoring “free” lessons from anyone I can find. I think I’m improving. Because of my situation, I’ve got a electronic drum kit that I bought, and then modified with mesh heads and home made sensors.
I’m one of those people who try to record e-drums using Addictive drums and try to make it sound like I’m sitting at a real drum kit that’s been mic’ed.
Guilty as charged, here…
Been playing for almost 40 years and recording them almost as long.
I have a Roland VS840 packed up…it looks very similar to whatever u got on the front left of the table there. What is that?
