Wellll Mikey knocked out 2 more song tonight and we might do another one in a bit? I’ve got the 5 songs he’s done thus far half-ass edited/mixed and dayum… made me way more excited about this album. we demo all of our ideas/songs with programmed drums in ‘RECORD’ and honestly they sound fucking sick like that, but nothing beats a human being playing something and giving it life and making it not sterile sounding. programmed drums can sound awesome for sure.. but REAL drums with REAL dynamics played by a human will ALWAYS be un-fuck-with-able,
and people keep asking on various sites, so here is the info on drum mics/pres/etc!
KICK - beta52 for reference only really + alesis DM5 trigger module. the mic is pretty much only to make sure the trigger is accurately capturing whats going on and makes it easy to spot extra trigger hits, etc. some of mikey’s footwork is fucking crazy sounding, but come watch us live and see him play ALL of it… no editing trick bullshit to make impossible patterns he can’t really play live.
