Grammy-nominated engineer Ian Schreier will share his approach to getting the most out of a drum kit using minimal equipment.
This seminar is for anyone interested in recording a drum kit using limited gear and resources. The focus is on demonstrating various tracking methods for 1, 2, 3, and 4 microphones. The microphones used will be the same model, inexpensive, and readily available. This workshop is a study and exploration of placement, balance, and polarity/phase adjustment to record a drum set. That's all we'll use. It's an exploration of the technique, not gear. That's the challenge...
The plan is for a day long event. But that may change depending on the level of interest generated, and other suggestions that might be explored as part of this seminar. The first 12-15 are garunteed a spot on Satuday, the 14th of January. If we have more people then the smallish class sizes I had envisioned, fear not! The plan is to add a second date and do it again!
