    Auralex Acoustics has a longtime user in drummer Danny Seraphine. Seraphine is one of the world’s most highly respected rock drummers, once rated by Buddy Rich as one of his favorite young talents. He was the drummer, percussionist and a founding member of the multi-million selling, GRAMMY Award-winning band Chicago. From 1967 to 1990, Seraphine played on and helped produce 18 gold and 13 platinum albums, 50 Top 40 hits (including 20 Top 10 singles) and five number-ones. Danny, and… View this story

    microphones
    Joe Shambro 04/06/16 04:29 PM,
    In the world of live sound, certain topics are guaranteed to draw fellow engineers into a multi-hour discussion that ends in no agreement and a hefty bar tab. Drum miking is at (or near) the top of the list. Further, every situation is different. Sometimes it’s best to just go with a pair of overheads and a kick mic, while at the other end of the spectrum, sometimes the situation calls for individual spot mics for all 48 inputs on… View this story

    church sound
    David McLain & Jeremy Carter 03/28/16 10:46 AM,
    Any time a band has some of its sound coming through the main PA system (usually vocals and electronic instruments) and some of the sound coming from the stage acoustically (most notably the drums) you have problems. The drummer must play loud enough to keep up with the sound system, which he cannot hear. However, playing loudly enough for the back row of listeners means that the drums are often too loud for the first several rows. It’s even louder… View this story

    Indie band Death Cab For Cutie has embraced TELEFUNKEN microphones for both their recordings and their worldwide touring. Death Cab’s North American tour kicked off March 23 in Toronto, Canada. DCFC drummer Jason McGerr commented, “Telefunken is making incredible microphones these days. I’ve been using a pair of M60 FET’s as my overheads, M80-SH on snare, M81-SH on toms, with an M82 on the kick. The live kit has never sounded better to my ears, both behind the drums and… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Punchy drums are what every engineer aims for in a mix and there’s definitely a way to get there. Sometimes just using the right compressors can do the trick, but most of the time it requires some adjustment of the parameters to really get the sound you’re looking for. Here’s a few excerpts from my Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, Audio Mixing Bootcamp and Drum Recording Handbook books all culled together for an overview… View this story

    So I’m standing in the kitchenette at Imperative Studios, my hair still wet from the shower taken in the ladies’ bathroom, when in comes one of the studio interns - a really good kid at heart, but heavily steeped in the “overconfidence” of youth. He catches me retrieving my container of coffee beans from the freezer. A half-smile crosses his face as he declares with an air of absolute authority, “You know, coffee beans shouldn’t be put in the freezer.”… View this story

    Renowned drummer Dennis Chambers recently used a combination of DPA Microphones on his Pearl drum kit during his solo performance at the Pearl booth at NAMM 2016. The relationship between DPA and Pearl began a few months earlier when Gabriel Antonini, national sales support/business development manager, from DPA and Bob Sabellico, Pearl Electronic Product manager, struck up a conversation at a trade show in Nashville. Antonini was there to raise awareness about DPA’s microphones, which peaked Sabellico’s interest. A few… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   What Is Damping? Damping (or dampening if that’s how you roll) is controlling the decay and overtones of a drum. Damping the drum is NOT a way to deal with a poorly tuned drum. Knowing how to effectively control the sound of the drums through damping is essential for every drummer, producer and recording engineer. Here I’ll cover some inexpensive products, some do-it-yourself options, and then some kick drum specific methods.… View this story

    recording
    Ward Lionel Kremer 02/10/16 10:31 AM,
    Here’s a simple, common-sense method to record a great-sounding drum kit on only four tracks. I’ve always been a follower of the less-is-more philosophy, and this kit technique goes all the way back to my analog 4-/8-/12-track days when track economy was a must. There have, of course, been volumes dedicated to recording “trap kits,” from only two microphones to two mics on each drum! I think the concept of a drum kit as a group of separate instruments is… View this story
