KAZ RODRIGUEZ'S DRUM LOOPS AND SAMPLES were recorded a the THE POOL studio in LONDON. This a very large live room with fairly hard surfaces. The drums were setup, more or less in the middle of the room. Being a big room there isn’t much in the way of early reflections, but the hard surfaces provide a nice big ambience that appears almost separate from the drums.
Kazs’ sound is fairly modern and his playing very detailed and fast so it was important to try and capture some of this detail into the drum beats and keep the reverb of the room under control, whilst still painting a big sound. To help we set screens around the drums, to stop some of the diffuse reverb spilling in to the close microphones, but also recorded plenty of room sound. The result is a surprisingly upfront and dry drum kit, that can be mixed with the room microphones for a sense of space rather than size as required by the groove and the context. The Studio complimented Kaz’s style superbly and you can hear it on this drum samples and loops.
Recording was fairly standard, in terms of microphones, and Neve 1079 preamps and eq was used on the way in to the computer. Mix wise a few Neve eqs were employed along with variety harmonic distortion processors, and parallel compression to keep the drums from being dwarfed in a mix, but without going the whole hog and leaving the user pasted in to a corner down the line. We successfully fount the balance between the drums sounding great out the box, but leaving you the room to process further as you require.
