Regardless of what style of recording you will be doing, if you fail to meet these simple requirements, YOU WILL MOST LIKELY FAIL! Recording audio is easy if you just follow a few rules. If you skip them, then your audio will suffer.

If you have not done so already, you really need to read the fist post in this forum. Mic placement is critical when it comes to recording. In this video, Conrad, the owner of Blue Room Productions, is slapping the crap out of these sheep skins! Please pay attention to where he has the mics set up as well as the room treatment he has in the drum room. (Here's a little hint, he has nothing but a picture hanging on the wall). He has also done one more very important thing that makes his drum room sound great. Any idea what he did. You must be signed in to read the answer.
