Let's be honest, there's nothing like the sound of a well-recorded and mixed acoustic drum kit. But to get that pro-sounding drum sounds, you need to have very specific skills under your belt. This in-depth course by Logic guru Joshua Carney will give you all that knowledge!
First, Joshua gives an overview of the various ways to mic a drum kit. Using a vast range of microphones, he thoroughly explains and demonstrates all the essential miking techniques you need to master. In different mic shootouts, he reveals his favorite mics and techniques for recording each element of the kit.
Next, you dive into Logic's Group recording, Take Folders and Comping features. Joshua shows you how to record and edit perfect takes... You learn everything about mixing and processing drums, from EQing, gating and compressing the drum elements to replacing drums and bus processing.
So get ready to learn all about the art and science of recording drums, right here, right now in this detailed course by audio expert Joshua Carney!
Section 1: Section 1: Introduction to Drum Recording
Josh is crushing these courses. I recently fell down the rabbit hole of learning how to record drums and my own drumming; this course helped me understand where I would like to go to complete my mic locker for recording the full kit with room and overhead mics. As well as mixing techniques that I just hadn't thought of prior to this course. I also appreciate that you covered multiple recording techniques. I can fully utilize the four mic technique while working towards a more complete setup. Thanks for helping me continue my learning and understanding of all things Logic. You're the man!

Another clear and helpful set of videos from Josh. I appreciate how he doesnâ€™t take the listenerâ€™s knowledge for granted and explains the processes he undertakes step by step, along with the reasoning behind them. It would be very useful to know how to deal with live drum recording and processing when the kit is behind an enclosure, but I learnt a lot from this course and shall be applying the instruction in my engineering work.
