21 Jul Drum tracking
Our little studio is great for most applications to do with soundtrack production. Much of it is computer based, but I like to get in live instrumentation where I can, this gives the music a more real feel.
Occasionally we have to clear the grand piano out of the main tracking room to make way for a full drum kit to be mic’d up.
For one particular project we needed live drums, I got the legendary drummer Cole Goodley to record. His late 60s Gretsch drum kit sounded beautiful in the tracking room. A modest compliment of 8 microphone succeeded in capturing the sound of the drums and also the room sound of the kit as a whole (a fine art in drum tracking).
The result was a great recording from an outstanding drummer.
The results of the session will be able to be heard in a future release from my solo project – dylanstoreymusic.com Scheduled for mid 2016.
