Also check out an in-depth feature on the development of the Recording Custom in issue 252 of Rhythm magazine.
In this video you hear the natural sound of the drums, recorded with two overheads, a bass drum and snare microphone, with no additional audio processing, plus an EQ'd and Compressed version of each configuration to demonstrate how the drums sound with a little studio magic.
Configurations featured are:
1) 12"x8", 13"x9", 16"x15" and 22"x16"
2) 10"x7.5", 12"x8", 14"x13" and 20"x16"
We recommend listening to our demos through high quality headphones or speakers to get the best representation of the audio.
All Rhythm Magazine hands-on demos are recorded using the AKG Drum Session Session I microphone set through the Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 audio interface. Drums are tuned using the Tune Bot electronic drum tuner.
Additional thanks to Protection Racket for the 2.75mx1.6 metre drum mat.
