Completely tidied and re-built my recording rig today so it looks less like an alien autopsy and more like a recording setup. Testing slight changes to my mic positions and, most importantly, trying out miking the snare both top and bottom to try and put some more rattle into it - the snare always disappoints me in the recordings I upload so I'm trying to get more pizzaz into its recorded sound.

Martin Pointon,


Very good Martin! Think there is more depth to it this way! The bass is nice low and short...your ride sounds cool, the toms are cool, little panning on those mics? Hi-hat is crispy! The snare sounds fine too, maybe just a little but only a little to much reverb? ... Good setup!+1

mpointon Thanks, Marc, for the comprehensive reply. I've reduced the panning on the overheads - well spotted! Reverb is my next issue to address. I need to find a decent one! +2

mpointon Free! I've got hold of a couple of reverbs I'm testing. The existing ones don't like the transients of snares, etc. One I'm playing with is called Ambience and it seems pretty good. Once I have a new job I'm going to get a few paid-for VSTs/AUs. +2

mpointon Thanks, Oli. The snare-side mic really makes a difference but there's a fine line between the Estelle and it having no effect. +1

mpointon Estelle? Damn auto correct. I meant excess. +1
good drums, great sound...!+1
Love this template of yours, fine drumming !! I have downloaded it & am going to ''pump it up'' to 150BPM to add this bass thing…
I really hope you don't mind me taking this liberty, but it's just so PERFECT..
If for any reason you don't like it tell me & i'll pull it out, no probs - deal ? ;)
