In this tutorial video for Production Expert, Drummer James Ivey continues his drum recording tutorial with a look at room mics, what configurations to use and how they sound.
James starts by explaining the 3 different room mic setups he is using. The first is an XY coincident paid of Aston Microphones Starlight small diaphragm condensers. The second mic is a Townsend Labs Sphere in Sphere 180 mode configured as an MS pair. The third mic is a Vanguard Audio Labs V44S Stereo condenser mic.
James plays a take with just the room mics to show off each of the configurations before blending his favourite room mic with the fully rigged up drum kit.
