Drum Solo and Home Recording Test

I recently recorded a short drum solo … here it is!

Remember awhile back, when I said I’m going to record some music this year? Well, this is me, testing my drum micing technique, and getting reacquainted with Logic Pro X.

I think it came out pretty well! Here’s what I used to record the drums:

  • Kick Drum – Audix D6
  • Snare Drum – Shure SM57
  • High tom – Shure SM57
  • Floor tom – Audio Technica ATM25
  • High Hat – MXL 993
  • Overheads (two of them) – MXL 990 (these were placed behind the drums, a little over my head, to capture it the way I hear it)

All of this was plugged into my Line 6 Toneport UX8 recording interface, which was plugged into my laptop. I used Logic Pro X for recording software.

And the drums – Tama Starclassic EFX drums, Pearl Chad Smith snare drum, and Paiste cymbals.

Fun stuff!
