My eleventh drum cover. The song is "Rocketeer," originally by the LA Electro/Hop Quartet "Far East Movement." First time recording along to a hip-hop track, and wow, remixing tracks is WAY more fun than I originally thought.
Re-arranged my kit again, and it'll be staying this way for a while. I'm loving the one-up two-down feel from my toms, now that I have the Pearl DR-503C ICON Rack. Much more freedom to place everything.
I figured I wouldn't need a footcam track for this, since it's mostly done with one foot, and it's easily visible on camera what both feet (hi-hat and kick pedal) are doing, and you can hear it too.
Most of this is raw drum audio, I didn't use as any compression as I do in most of my other tracks. Added a bit of reverb where appropriate to the cymbals, and equalized the master track to suit my drums better. (Less bass in certain parts, a quick vocal boost.) What you hear of my kit is more or less raw audio, with reverb and a couple of fade-outs and graphic equalizers here and there. Not too shabby for $30 worth of microphones and a couple of hours of mixing, is it?
I use two Singstar Microphones as overheads connecting into one USB port on my laptop, in addition to a Rock Band Microphone as a bass drum ambient mic. All audio is edited using Adobe Audition 3.0. All video is edited and synced using Sony Vegas Pro 9. For details on my drum/cymbal/hardware setup, please see my profile under "channel information."
