#92: SDC – Overheads – Alt Rock – Acrylic Snare

The vertical array of mics set up behind the drummer?s right shoulder are the focus of this session. We use 7 small diaphragm condensers across a wide price range for this audition and we asked Jake Mohan to go heavy with the toms for this song. The mics are set up in the ?Recorder Man? configuration and there is a drawing in the session images in case you are not familiar with it. The front mic directly over the center of the snare is a Neumann TLM103. Be sure to use the ?A/B? feature to clearly hear the difference between two selected mics.
