Isolating Miked Drums In A Small Room

Making good acoustic recordings at home can be difficult – you usually have limited space, and there’s not much isolation for recording multiple sources at the same time.

One solution for capturing drum tracks with a great live feel is to mic up the drum kit as usual. But instead of trying to simultaneously record miked-up bass and guitars, run them direct through amp emulators. That way, everyone can play at the same time, but you don’t have the bleed problems of everyone playing at the same time, with all the mics open.

Once the drum tracks are finished, you can go back and replace the direct guitar and bass tracks with miked-up amp versions – or use a re-amp box to play the direct-recorded guitar tracks back out through a miked up amp.
