New way of rec. bassdrum.....

Is there anybody out there that has some new freaky ideas of recording/micing the kickdrum? I´m kinda bored with the D12 or u47fet sound.....

Can someone post a link to the 'speaker' BD mic thread please?

You missed a cool thread.....

Small diaphragm omni, couple inches off the preferably wood floor, on a diagonal between the floor tom and the kick, about 3 ft out facing towards the kick. Squash. Maybe one or two other mics on the kit...

Let me do the honours...

How funny. I was just on my way back home tonight and thought "Hmmm, I really need to check out that set-up again."

Haven't reread the thread yet (?) but does is it say how it's wired? I remember people talking about "hot" outputs and such but can't remember if it's just a simple wiring jobbie. (As you can probably tell, I don't do much wiring/soldering/pretending to know anything!) Suppose I'll reread it now...

Anyway...

Check out that contraption. And then check out AJ's bungi job as well!

I'll stick a mic either inside or on the beater side and then put a 414B/ULS outside in figure 8.

Soundelux U-195 about 2-4 ft. from the kik, "fat" switch in, "lo cut" in... to a Phoenix DRS-2... to Fatso [light use, like "warm setting 3"].

It's worked a couple of times quite nicely... sometimes I leave the switches on the mic disengaged, it kinda depends on the drum. 24" drums, are usually no switches, 22" and smaller, switches.

Best of luck.

NS-10 woofer plugged into a DI, about a foot or two out from the kick. Give it a transformer and some class A and bring up the volume when you want to warm up the entire mix.

Yo NSux,

Not a new micing technique but effective for certain things,

Run a PT send from your kick to an aux fader, on the aux fader put an EQ (like ren or fr) cut the lows, then run thu Amp Farm (a fender twin maybe...).

Play with the eq till you have that nice slap workin... gets a great Metal Kick 'click' that cuts thru and you can ride the fader out on the soft parts and in on the more intense. Just used it on a metal project and the band was diggin it...me too cuz they thought it was their playing.. heh

If you're recording digitally I'd definitely second this suggestion. Gives it a little bit of what you're missing from the "sucky analog" world.heh

I just remembered another recent favorite. Ran a mult of the kick into an electro harmonix octave multiplex (fuzz/octave pedal thingy).

Messing with the blend of the distorted subharmonic thing and the original yielded a cool, messed up kik tone. Other similar pedals would probably also be cool...
