Warren’s Custom Drum Samples:
Download the original drum samples I’ve used on many of my productions and mixes including Aerosmith, The Fray and many others.
I hope they help you to get fat and slamming drum sounds!
Drum Mic Placement
In this video, I show you how I mic the drum kit at my studio, Spitfire. It is a relatively small room similar to what you might find at many home studio setups. I use these miking techniques to get a nice tight drum sound in my room and then I add samples to get a huge drum sound if needed.
You can get great drum sounds at your home studio setup too!
Piano Miking Techniques
Piano is an extremely complex instrument and often can be one of the hardest things to record properly. In this video, I show some of my favorite ways to mic both a grand and upright piano. I use a variety of different microphones and positions.
You can download the audio files below to compare the different mics!
Sunset Sound Drum Setup
Here’s how I mic the drum kit when I’m recording at the legendary Sunset Sound.
It is one of the best sounding drum rooms I’ve ever recorded in and I love the live, roomy tones I can get with this setup.
Sunset Sound Studio 2 Tour
In this video, I give you a quick behind the scenes walkthrough of the legendary Sunset Sound Studio 2. I discuss the control room, live room, console, outboard gear, etc.
