here is some footage of me pounding through one of the two new songs we've started tracking....
Sure SM57s on the rack toms, and snare-side.
Oktava snare batter as well as overheads.
Audix D6's in the kicks.
Mike Blevins can chime in on placements, floor tom mics, recording software etc.
Pearl MCX with Emperor batters, tuned a bit low
Kicks with Powerstroke batters - old and beat to death. Heavily muffled batters at medium tension and loosely tuned resos with light muffling.
8"x14 DW Performance Series steel snare with a Remo CS batter.
The audio begins with camera mic, then audio that fades in is comprised of scratch guitars and 100% acoustic drum sounds. Mike can also chime in with compression or whatever else he may have done to the sound.
