Studio Setup 11 shows how to add live drums to your home recording studio for all those Kings and Queens of the drum throne.
That's right drummers this one is for you!
In the diagram below 3 of the dynamic mics are meant to record the kick, toms, and snare - while the 2 condenser mics are meant to be positioned overhead to record the cymbals, hi-hats and the overall set.
You can either buy these mics individually or as part of a set.
Whichever way you decide to go, make sure your audio interface has at least 8 inputs to be able to handle everything.
Most of the other setups described here only require a couple inputs, but with 5 or more XLR cables coming in you'll want to make extra sure you have enough preamps.
This has been voted the least favorite setup by no-fun neighbors (which I have), but it's a long way to the top if you wanna rocknroll.
Don't let them get in the way of having a good time - life is too short to not wail on some drums!!
Seriously who doesn't like drum solos at 2 am?!?
