Does anyone have a good room to remic some drums for me?

Post by jwnc » Thu May 18, 2017 9:03 am

HI,

I was interested in maybe seeing if someone was interested in doing a small experiment for me. I have some drums tracked in a very tight dead room and while the performance is great, there is not a lot of vibe on the drums/room. I know I can do reverbs, etc, but was curious if anyone had a cool room to reamp/remic the drums to get me some more vibe/space/depth.

I did a experiment at home just with the limited normal house room to test to see if it may even be worth it. It feels like with a good room and mic it could really add some needed vibe/depth to it.

Let me know if anyone would be interested, I am sure we could work something if I needed more songs done.

Thanks
Jason

I don't think a good room is going to be the thing?

Re-amping for reverb is different from re-recording, so it won't be the same as playing the drums in a good room.

I think what you are looking for is a live sounding space, like a tiled bathroom, a chamber, a stairway, maybe even a garage with a big metal door and blend that back in.

Results may vary :D
The previous statement is from a guy who records his own, and other projects for fun. No money is made.

I've done it once or twice in my room, which also sounds good with actual drumming. PM or email me if you want to have me try in my live room.

I have access to some crazy good rooms. I don't mind helping out.
