Your Start to Great Drum Tracks

asheville_recording_toms

Your Start to Great Drum Tracks Recording your drum tracks can be one of the most challenging aspects of recording your bands music. If anything makes your music sound like a home brew, it’s because something went wrong in your drum tracks. This article will be the first part of a series of multiple articles on drum production and recording. Today we’ll cover how to place the microphones over the drum kit or otherwise known as “overheads”. We’ll cover two approaches and a fun fact on cymbal tone: A classic Beatles era overhead miking approach A new school asymmetrical approach A insight to shaping brittle cymbal tones, and cool stereo effects And of course, we’ll pair each of these sections with videos. So you can hear what I’m talking about and take it all in. That’s the point…isn’t it? Limitations Are Not a Deal Breaker Let’s face it…we all have limitations. These limitations could be a selection of gear, the quality of gear, the number of microphones and inputs, or even the space that we have to record in. However, the modern recording mindset is to rid ourselves of limitations. Let’s take guitar amps for example…We buy guitar amp simulators …

An Interview with STEREOSPREAD

stereospread3

We had a lovely chat with a local Asheville band, STEREOSPREAD. The band is comprised of James and Sarah, a couple local to Hazelwood, NC. Look for their upcoming local shows! Q:Why did you chose this particular genre of music? A: James’s background is in stuff like trip-hop, darkwave, and shoegaze, but he’s produced in all kinds of genres. We probably would have been a triphop band were it not for Sara’s pop sensibilities. Her vocals were influenced by rock and pop vocals (and jazz), so she gravitated towards pop structures and the sing-a-long chorus. So we ended up combining the atmospheric aspects of shoegaze and other darker electronic genres with pop songwriting. Most people consider us dreampop. Q:How long has the band been together? A: The band has been together about as long as we have been a couple. We met online (on Facebook) through a mutual production friend and we did a couple of collaborations long distance. Well, the attraction was not just musical, so James ended up moving to NC and we’ve been together ever since. Q:How did you come up with the name of your band – Stereospread? A: We decided to be “STEREOSPREAD” about three months after …
