I bought this immediately, just flipping through the pages now... Looking awesome!
Hey I appreciate all of the hard work and detail you put into this! I had my first big drum recording session yesterday and the information that I pulled from this guide was extremely valuable. Everything came out great!
Same here, I'm in the middle of mine too and the guide has helped me a lot. Thanks Santi!
Thanks! Good to know you find it useful! I tried to make it effective no-bullshit eBook
Recorded the drums on this with some advices took from the book!!
(Drums are all acoustic, the drummer is a monster hitter)
One thing that i cant get right with overheads...
Does exact distance from the microphones to the center of the snare also mean exact same height from the floor (spaced pair)?
Awesome book. i read it like once a month
Well, it doesn't matter that much really. Most of the time I have them at different heights.
Well done! Snare drum is really punchy and very nice separation on the kick!
But i suppose they shouldn't be much different in height?
not exactly but i don't know..... "not so much"
Most of the time the snare is a little more to the left side of the kit (from drummer's perspective), so unless you want the OhLeft to be farther away from the kit horizontally, the only way to get the distance the same from the snare as the OhRight is to raise it up a bit.
I find that it also helps because the OhLeft is now a little farther away from the Hi Hats, which always tend to be a little louder than you'd like in the Ohs, especially if they're a basher. Google drum OH mic pics and you should find plenty of examples where the OhLeft is considerably higher up than the OhRight.
I know the aesthetics of this won't fit everybodys taste here (almost zero timing corrections, oldschool/human/natural vibe), but here is my first drums recording ever :
It's also the first album I totally produced, engineered, mixed, mastered...etc.

The book was really an amazing help, thank you a lot for writing it !
I'm glad I didn't had to use a lot of samples on drums in the end (they're between 70 to 90% natural, depending on the parts).
I even used the kick mic !
Nice one! Maybe you don't need to use any samples at all next time I like your approach!
I think this is amazing!
New video! This time it's a camera mic drum recording test.
