If you’re a content creator, you’ll know how much gear there is out there: mics, cameras, recording interfaces, cables…where does it end, and if you’re new to this, where do you start? Sweetwater sent over a sweet all-in-one content creator pack for drummers who want to set up a solid home studio, so we decided to set it up and test it out at Jared’s place.
This kit comes with all the essentials for recording and filming drum videos:
In this video, you’ll get a tour of Jared’s home studio – including a 9’x12′ soundproof whisper room – and see how easy it is to start making drum videos.
P.S. The V PACK comes with three tom mics. If you have more than three toms, let the overheads capture the high tom(s) while you mic the lower toms.
P.P.S. To get the best snare sound, the center of the snare needs to be placed exactly between the two overheads so they both pick up the signal at the same time as the snare mic. Use an XLR cable to measure the angle/distance between the snare and each overhead mic to prevent unwanted delay.
