RAW & ROWDY samples and loops were recorded at the OLD CHAPEL studio in CHICHESTER, UK. This studio has a medium size live room with fairly hard surfaces, it was an old chapel! The drums were setup toward the back of the room. The studio has a fantastic sound for drums and marries together with the drum kit into one big sound with a mixture of both early reflections and ambience that provides both size and length respectively.
The room was perfect for grungy rock drums and this and for this drum samples and drum beats so we recorded a variety of vintage , idiosyncratic drum kits that were full of character, but that we knew would sit really well in a mix further down the line, where the character has to fight through and the imperfections in the drums become authenticity in the mix.
Recording was fairly standard, in terms of microphones, but we made sure we had plenty to capture the room and make it mesh with the overall sound, to try and get the recording to reflect how it sounded to be stood in the room with the drums banging away.
A fair wack of harmonic distortion, was used as well as parallel compression, (both at the recording stage by pushing vintage preamps, and at the mix stage) to get the drums to a point where they would sound large enough out the box, but not leave the user pasted in to a corner if they wished to further process the drums to work in there own project. Hopefully we got that balance right and you have a collection of cool sounding big kits, that aren’t overly hyped or polished but full of vibe instead.
