#52: Dynamics on Metal Snare

Live drums in an electronic composition? Yes! We set up old and new dynamic mic favorites and pointed them at a Ludwig Black Beauty snare and recut a section of an original song by local session player, Jake Mohan. Be sure to use the “Listen Blind” feature under “Options” to avoid any preconceived notions on which mic you’ll like.

NOTE: we are using the Lewitt LCT340s with Recorder Man configuration for the overheads and an AKG D12VR for the kick.
