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.
