    I listened to this on my phone but even through one shitty speaker it is HUGE. If I hadn't bought the guide when it came out, I would have bought it right now :-D

    Yeah, that video is just one example. When I was there I heard some really good "raw" drum sounds. It's a pretty damn nice studio I have to say. Haven't recorded there though. Maybe someday!

    I have just updated the eBook to version 1.1 with some minor bug fixes. The price has not changed. It's still pay-what-you-want!

    Thank you! I would love to write another book. No definite plans yet though. What would you like it to be?

    New video! I have been using hi-quality recording gear for many years and wanted to know how good sound can you get with a 149 € drum mic set and 199 € preamp/converter. I'm pretty sure this is a very common beginner scenario. Let me know what you think!

    I'm thinking of adding some mixing advice to my future videos. Would it be better to use only limited amount of plugins and really try to push it OR use the plugins I would normally use (lots of them)? I kinda like the idea of pushing the limits, but it has some serious cons.

    Hi Daunt,

    I just bought your Aggressive Drums pdf. Impressing work! Thank you very much!

    My wishes for your mixing video:

    First you use limited amount of plugins – explain why you do what you do with these plugins

    - - then do it again with the plugins you prefer to achieve your goal,
    discuss what you are listening for, explain why these tools are better choices,
    and how you use them to reach your vision.

    :worship: Well – 2014 is still young and bright…

    Happy New Year
    PlugSlut

    Got a great sound out of that budget setup dude. A mixing video would be great, as PS said especially if you can explain what you're listening to when dialing things in and let us here the sounds with and without each step of processing.

    Thanks for the input! I think it would be a really cool idea to first mix with stock plugins and then with alternative commercial plugins to show the difference.

    This guide is excellent so far! I'm only halfway through it but I can't stop reading. I definitely needed this! I've got my drummer reading it as well(a drummer that truly cares about how the drums sound? I know it's crazy). This guide is going to be extremely valuable in the next month or so.
    I would love to read more guides that are this detailed yet clear.

    Thank you very much! It's nice to see that people are still discovering the eBook even though it was released almost a year ago. It is so hard to get the word out there. Every share or comment helps! Thanks!
