Recording Drums In Your Home Studio

Recording drums in a home or project studio is one of the most challenging things we do as recording enthusiasts. There are so many things involved in getting a great sound. Because drums are loud, they tend to excite the room more than other instruments. This means that any room issues you may have become much more evident. Also, drums are typically recorded with multiple microphones which means the potential for phase issues will exponentially increase!

These things (along with others) make it very challenging to compete with that “big studio” sound from our modest home studios.  So, how do we overcome this?

In this video I will demonstrate one way to achieve pristine, multi-track drum recordings without the need for a beautiful acoustic environment, a closet full of expensive microphones or the skills needed to place each microphone just right to achieve the best sound without any phase issues.

    This isn’t really getting great drum sounds in any environment. This is just triggering a midi device. No?
