I've recently gotten access to a former church building for recording, It's part of a big building that guys in my city are using for rehearsal and art spaces and the church part is available for renting for recording. I was wondering is there any tips for using such a large space? The reverb in there is amazing but it's obviously it's gonna be in everything which is a problem. My idea is to get a garden gazebo, place the drum kit inside it and to hang blakets and acoustic tiles off the outside to dry up the close mics a bit and then have room mics outside for the ambient mics. Like this Strapping Young Lad studio diary at 44 seconds in. I'm guessing covering the kick drum in blankets would also be a good place to start so there's not tons of verb on the kick. I did get to use the space already for a drum session and I really liked it, but it was for a more laid back rock project and we wanted it quite wet so the reverb wasn't a problem. I can imagine for metal it could cause a few issues. It was very easy to get a huge snare sound and the cymbals sounded much smoother and nicer than when I record in smaller rooms. Any tips for such a recording in such a place?
