VIDEO: Drum Mic Technique with the RNR1

Producer, engineer, and sE Artist Brad Wood (Smashing Pumpkins, Touché Amoré, Liz Phair, Pete Yorn) let us into his Los Angeles studio to fill us in on one of his favorite unorthodox drum mic techniques using the sE / Rupert Neve RNR1 active ribbon mic.


The RNR1 was recorded through a Rupert Neve Designs Shelford 5052 mic preamp, EQ bypassed, HP filter set at 70Hz. Within ProTools, the track was processed with the Soundtoys Devil-Loc and Universal Audio 1176 plugins.


p.s. Special thanks to Jared Shavelson for drumming! You can find him on Instagram and Twitter, and can check out his new band here.
