In a studio situation you'd normally mic the snares top and bottom, place a couple mics in the kick drum, and one out sside of it.. each tom will have its own mic.. and you'd prolly use some U-87's as overheads.. basicly every peice has one or more mics on it..

Don't forget to check for phasing when using multiple mics!

use the 3:1 ratio with over heads..

The distance between the mics and the drum set (up and down) = 1.

The distance between the two OH mics (left to right) is 3.

3:1.. 3 Parts away from each other left to right, 1 part away from the drums up & down.

Much thanks man.
That kit will sound pretty good after some gating, and eqing.. as long as the drummer doesnt drink a gallon of beer;)

Can't promise anything!
LOL..one time he came in having to shit like you wouldn't believe and the sewer was all fucked up so he couldn't go for about 3 hours. It turned out to be the best session so far!

very cool thread, guys.

my equipment-
Epiphone Dot Archtop Semi-Hollow(beautiful instrument)
Standard P-style bass, Squier(on a budget)
Epiphone AJ-1 acoustic-cheapo beapo to play in the back yard, but still good quality,my favorite christmas gift.
behringer bx600 60watt bass amp-I play the bass and the dot through this(no money for guitar amp)
student trumpet
free recording program- audacity, heh
yep, I hook myself right up to the computer and go from there. it sounds ok, but I'm just messin' around with recording, just getting ideas onto some kinda medium to remember them. I'm too lazy to tab them.
I have no acoustic pick-up so I just use the computer mic. I'm sure you're all shaking your heads as you read this. but once again, just holding on to ideas.

I've been playing bass for about a year and a half and guitar for about 9 months, so I'm very new to these and quite inexperienced. I've been playing trumpet for 6 years, which really isn't much either. but I definitely feel as if music will be a huge part of my life, and it's already becoming one. the passion is there.

Anyone here with classical roots?

How do you know a blues harmonica player is knocking at your door?

He can't find the key and doesn't know when to come in.

My equipment is 1 strat(squire) 1 predator(about to have humbucker pickups in it much better sound) acoustic squire and a harmonica.I have a 4 channel VM04 fostex mixer with digital effects just playin with, BOSS ME-33 pedal, and a Cry Baby WAH WAh. Amp is a randall. But I install, adjust and train people on sound systems
(visual stuff too like projectors, lights, plasma, etc) so I work with Allen and HEath, Mackie, Shure, EV, Seinheiser, etc on a daily basis. I also set up and run sound for some friends bands. Run a Mackie 1642 VLZ with whatever gizmos we pick up from the music store to play with..We're the guys that borrow but never seem to buy!

I don't think I'll really be able to contribute, but I'd love to hear what you're doing when it's done!

OLGA.com is an excellent on-line resource,with bass and guitar tab,chords,lyrics etc.
OLGA stands for On Line Guitar Archive.
If you can't get in, go to the Boston (rock band) homepage.You can get the search page from there.
That's how I found it anyway!Posted Image

Hello everyone.

This is a general message to everyone regarding starting a sub-thread called "Music".

I think there's a lot of musicans and music lovers amongst us here and I know I would love to share music and ideas with everyone and just get general feedback on ideas, sounds and songs because my audiance is truely our kind.

I was wondering what the moderaters think about this as well as my fellow members.

Please give it some thought because I would really like to see the myco community play a roll in everyday music.
