FREE Workshop: Live Miking – Basic to Complex
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | August 1, 2017
Calling all drummers who play live as well as all sound engineers who have drummers play in their venue! It’s time to upskill your miking techniques with our FREE Live Miking – Basic to Complex workshop presented by Patrick Dudgeon.
Yes, all you need to do to mic up a drum kit is put a mic in front of it, right? Or above it could work. But where specifically would you get the best tone? Would it be off axis or in the centre? Would you want one or two mics overhead? What about blending the tones of all your mics so that the drum kit has a balanced tone?
Bearing all that in mind, it is clear to see that there is a lot more to miking a drum kit than just sticking a mic in front of it. During this workshop, Patrick will guide you through the process of getting your kit properly miked up for live tone.
Where: Paul Bothner Music Plumstead
Shop G7 Richmond Center,
Main Road, Plumstead
When: 26 August 2017
What to Expect
During this workshop Patrick will specifically be looking at:
Basic mic theory
Starting with a good source
Assessing the needs of the show
Advanced acoustic theory
Multi mic drum setup
This is perfect for any drummer or sound engineer. Even if you’ve got heaps of experience in the field, you could learn a bit more about the styles and preferences of a professional in the field.
This will elevate how you approach miking drums to whole new level.
