The next free course we have for you all is: Recording & Producing Drums with Matt Starr!
This course comes with multitracks as well, so make sure you download those!
Matt Starr is an incredible drummer and producer, and has recorded and toured with Mr. Big, Ace Frehley (KISS), Beautiful Creatures, members of Guns ‘N Roses, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, and more.
In addition to being an accomplished touring and recording musician, Matt has been teaching drumming and production for the last 20 years. He draws from real world experience to give you practical and useful direction for maximum growth and success!
The goal of every drummer and engineer should be to create recordings that sound as close to the final record as possible, and this course will show you how to do that!
In this course, Matt will explain his drum kit choice and his philosophy behind choosing the right components to create a huge drum sound: kick, snare, cymbals, toms, heads, and pedals. You will learn how to control the ring of your toms and snare, how to make your kit and tom sound cohesive, and how to keep your snare tuning consistent through longer recording sessions and live events.
You will also learn how to create a signature sound for your drums by learning special micing techniques. With these techniques, you will give your drums more character, attack, or you can alter the tones of your room mics.
