THE MASTERCLASS

In a poll asking ‘What’s the most difficult instrument to record?’ acoustic drums would probably be the absolute winner.

A typical drum set includes many different instruments, sometimes dozens, and both obtaining the right timbre from each of them, and the correct balance between them all, may feel like a complex and daunting task.

If you are in this situation, this master class is just for you.

Presented by music producer and engineer Roger Montejano, this class will show you the most usual microphone techniques used to record acoustic drums. From one, two, three and four-mic methods, to multi-mic setups with room and ambience mics.

Following an eminently practical approach, you’ll have the opportunity to listen to how all the techniques sound, and will learn which ones to use depending on the project and style. At the end of the class you’ll be able to bring all the audio files home, and you’ll also get Roger’s personal Pro Tools recording template.

Roger will also cover other important topics like dealing with out of tune drums, taming resonances, essential non-audio gear to have at hand, selecting cymbals, using multiple snares when recording an album, what is the single most important element in the signal chain, speeding up setup time with a master template, useful naming conventions, and many more.

Roger Montejano

Professional member of the Grammy Recording Academy, Roger is a Telecommunications Engineer specializing in Sound and Image. He graduated with honors, receiving the Best Academic Record award from the Official College of Telecommunications Engineers and earning distinctions in the Final Project "Digital Signal Processing".

Soon after, Roger obtained the title Specialist in Studio Production with Pro Tools from Berklee Music, and since he's worked producing, recording, mixing and mastering all kinds of musical projects.

The people he's worked with usually highlight two important qualities: a deep technical knowledge, and an innate understanding of the modern sound.

Roger has been involved in many interesting projects during his career. It is difficult to pick out just a few, but some that have achieved media success are "Beyond Classical", under consideration for the 62th Grammy Awards (Best Contemporary Instrumental Album), "Voorpret", under consideration for the 60th Grammy Awards (Best Alternative Album), "Paradoja", used in the promotional campaign of the movie "Inception" (Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Caine) at Canal+, or "Los Vivos", from the original soundtrack of "Promoción Fantasma".

As an expert in technological advances in audio, Roger regularly collaborates with different media, and his articles are published in leading magazines such as Sonic Scoop, Future Music, Computer Music, ISP Música and Producción Audio. He's written over 80 articles: educational texts, analysis, and reviews of products from Avid, PMC, Telefunken, SPL, ADAM, Steven Slate, Thermionic Culture, Shure, Beyerdynamic, AKG, Violet Design, JBL, Motu, Presonus, Yahama, Native Instruments, etc.

Some of those have been noted, such as "Recording Drums at PKO", "Capturing the Perfect Acoustic Guitar Tone" and "Recording E. Guitars: Where to Shoot at the Cone". Reviews of Pro Tools 2018.1, Pro Tools 11, Pro Tools 9, Pro Tools 8 and Pro Tools 7.4, Digidesign C|24, Pro Tools|HD Native, and didactical articles such as Speed up with "Pro Tools I, II and III", "Vocal Mic Shootout at PKO", and "Recording Vocals I and II".

While now an engineer and producer, he started his career as a musician, the drummer with the band La Pena Negra. Roger has played on many stages and TV sets as Buenafuente's late night show. This dual perspective is useful in understanding the needs of artists and other professionals in the industry.
