T1 - The Drum Kit: What a Recordist Ought to Know

Alex Case, University of Massachusetts Lowell - Lowell, MA, USA

Audio engineers, in order to serve the artists they record, must have deep knowledge of the instruments they track and mix. The greatest of tests is the pop/rock drum kit. Drummers obsess about every detail of their instrument. Engineers do the same with every detail of their studio. This tutorial merges those obsessions, so that a recording engineer can be more fully informed about the key drivers of sound quality for the drum kit. Know the instrument first, and let that drive your decisions for recording and mixing the instrument.
