Record Great Sounding Drums

Nikolaj Bjerre


Record Great Sounding Drums

From producing music for the BBC to headlining Glastonbury, Nikolaj Bjerre is an accomplished recording engineer and drummer across all music styles.

In this course, he’ll walk you through his four favourite techniques to record great sounding drums at home or in the studio with:

a simple 1 microphone setup, a great way to lay down a demo very fast

a 3 microphone setup, adding the kick-drum and snare in the mix

a 5 microphone setup, also known as the Glyn Johns’ recording method

and an “ultimate” close-mic setup with 13 microphones

Basically he’ll show you how he works on a daily basis and what he does during a recording session. For each setup, Nik will walk you through the types of microphones he uses and explain how to place them to get the best sound.

Because you’ll be looking at such a wide range of techniques for recording drums, this course can be applied to recording at home in a very simple setup or you can use the more advanced techniques in the recording studio.

If you’ve never recording drums before this course will get you on the fast track to producing some great sounding drums in no time!
