Quote of the Day

“That first song on your demo is like a radio hit: you want to hook the listener in the first ten seconds, interest him/her more in the next ten seconds, and if you can really hold them through the first minute they might listen to your whole tape.”- John Simon

January 2014 - Miking The Drum Kit - The Beat Goes On!
Five approaches to drum miking from five respected pros
By Lorenz Rychner

Our January 2014 issue features information on drum miking from five professional engineers, four of whom are also respected studio drummers. This page features links to the audio files discussed in that article.

Pat Bautz has provided two audio examples of kits he works with regularly, Pop/Rock (sample 1) and Reggae/Ska (example 2). They're available below as direct links to listen to or download.

David Crigger used the Electri-Fried Blues sample library from Big Fish Audio to build a sample track over which he played some multitracked drums. He collected all of the song's parts into audio files that you should be able to drop into any DAW, line up, and play with. We offer them as a ZIP file with a link below. Beware -- this is well over 200 MB of content and might take a while to download.

Dave Martin has three ZIP files of the drum kits he discussed in the article - two of his contemporary house kit and one of the vintage Radio King kit - played by the late Tommy Wells. These ZIPs range from 35 to 65 MB each.

You can learn more about the audio in these files by reading the interviews in our January 2014 issue. Enjoy!
