  • Percussion
  • Electric Guitar
  • Electric Bass

  • Latin Percussion
  • Voice-Over

  1. Thanks for this. I record acoustic and electric instruments, voices, hand percussion, keyboards and drum machine. Valuable stuff!

    Thanks for the videos. I was really interested in your explanation of mixing up a kick drum and found the audio examples of each mic really helpful. I’m starting a home studio so for me this videos will be very helpful in giving me the basics on good sound. I’m going to start looking at the prices of the mic you have used in the videos and will hopefully be able to get a few so I can get going with the studio I will soon be running. Do you do videos on mixing desks as well? I’m looking for a new desk to get my place going. I read a good article recently on producing a demo which raises some similar points to yours:

    Many thanks for the vid and please keep them coming,
