Ready, Set, Record: Drums is a beginner drum recording video course. I created this course to teach people simple drum recording setups using minimal mic placements so that they can record the best sounding drums possible with the least amount of hassle. It took me about 40 hours to produce this course and I stand by it with a 60 day, no-questions-asked, 100% money back guarantee. If you're not happy, I'm not happy. It's that simple.
The course is broken down into three videos or modules:
- Ready, Set - Some practical tips and an overview on the drums and what makes them challenging to record
- Record - Recording drums with dynamic, condenser, and ribbon mics, in setups ranging from one mic to four
- Mixing - Mixing the drum recordings from the Record module, with a focus on understanding key mixing techniques like EQ and Compression
The vids are yours to keep and reference forever. Total run time is 80 minutes.
