Recording A Rock Snare Drum Using A Blend Of Three Microphones

In this the fourth and final free video tutorial in this series, Producer Mike Exeter explains and demonstrates his approach to recording Snare Drum for a metal track using a total of 3 microphones, a Shure SM57 and a Warm Audio WA-84 on top and a single WA-84 on the bottom. By flipping the bottom mic out of phase and then blending the 3 signals Mike can produce a fat-sounding snare tone without reaching for any EQ.
