Another experiment in my world of recording while hitting things. Trying out the Remo Powerstroke 3 clear on kick batter, with a Black suede on reso (No hole). Re-orientated the kit with the Racks & Floors to my hard left and right. Made room for optimum hat/cymbal ergonomics. Have some new cymbal additions under the mic – 15″ K Sweet Hats, and some K custom special dry’s scattered about. Loving that line.
I’ve been meaning to set up various ambient mics around this facility for some time now (19 years or so). I have some drum tracking lined up to record and finally got around to giving this a go beforehand. I set up a basic Kick/Snare/Hat kit and six different mic locations. Some more successful than others. The video cuts between the mic setups to showcase the results.
Got together with the @androidlust crew for a “Live in Studio” performance. I love being able to experiment with non-standard setups. Used a minimal setup based around kick/snare/hat with a T-Shirt dampened floor tom and ching-ring. “No drum samples harmed in this recording!” Full video & Track is available via YouTube & Bandcamp.

Some Sunday Synthesis. Hooked up some box’s. Glitched out a drum loop recorded last week. Noodled on the Rhodes, & the A4 is supplying an elec kick, 303ish bassline, a clap, and CV for the Arp noise/snare. Fun times.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any drum geekery. Trying out some new mic options before laying down some drum tracks for @youshriek . I recently got myself a @heisermanaudio H47 and quickly acquired a 2nd from the same batch. Trying them out as drum overheads. I’m pleased. ..
Inside view of how the creative process finds its way. My creative world is filled with never-ending experimentation. This is little insight into my creative process. For me is often sorting out the parts that don’t make the cut. These are such parts.
