“I set up the drum set, mic, and amps and watched the engineer set up all the mics. I’ve never actually seen how to mic up a drum set and always heard that people don’t always do it right, but the engineer explained why he set them up the way he did. He explained that the sound from the drums comes from the body of the drum and that’s where you want the mic, not on top. The first day we got the scratch track and tracked drums, bass and guitar. The next day we did leads and vocals. They were long 12 hour days but I feel like I learned a lot in those 2 days.”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
