Mike Avenaim Tracking Drums

Mike Avenaim Tracking Drums

Mike Avenaim was at Ultimate Rhythm Studios last week recording 11 tracks for Jordan Millar’s upcoming album. In 3 days not only were 11 tracks recorded but two entirely different kits were used, two entirely different sets of tom toms were used, 10 snare drums were used, two different mic setups were used as well as recording shakers, tambourine, hand claps and marching snares.

 
 

“Mike had a very specific idea of what he wanted his drums to sound like for each song. From an engineer’s standpoint that’s a lot of fun because we aren’t just trying to capture a drum sound. We’re capturing the sonic landscape that the rest of the album will be built around. Mike did a fantastic job!” says engineer Charlie Waymire.

Check out Jordan Millar and Mike Avenaim on Facebook and enjoy a few photos from the session below.

    Eclectic Is The Name Of The Game With The Sonic Chameleon

    True diversity is hard to find in todays music business let alone in a single artist. That’s why it’s always a pleasure when The Sonic Chameleon is in the studio because you truly never know what you’ll get. From the Jazz vocal stylings of the amazing Katie Campbell, the fusion drumscapes of Nathan Carter to the metal madness of Ray Rojo!

    “Skinwalker”, a great 90’s esque rock song, is being mixed by Charlie at Ultimate Rhythm Studio. We’ll have some sound samples up as soon as mastering is done.

    For more information visit The Sonic Chameleon’s Facebook Page.

    These sessions have been an absolute blast! Here’s a few photos from the various sessions.

    FullOnDrums.com Episode 9 is live and features some very cool Cascade Ribbon and Tube Microphones. With the goal being to capture a great drum tone with only 3 mics Charlie & Scott recorded several popular configurations and a couple not so common configurations (for ribbon mics that is).

    The results were quite impressive but don’t take our work for it. Download the Cascade Multi-Track Files and hear for yourself!
