Legends in the microphone game, Lauten Audio, has made a doco called ‘DRUMS’ featuring 10x Grammy-Award-Winning Engineer Darrell Thorp (Foo Fighters/ Beck) and acclaimed drummer and music producer Joey Waronker (Beck/Elliott Smith).
Shot in Dave Grohl’s Studio 606, this new in-depth documentary explores the art of people, percussion, and prolific sound using a selection of Lauten Audio microphones and a personal, and unassuming Pearl drum set owned by Joey Waronker — and you can download the Pro Tools session.
It’s not a how-to video, but more of a discussion of sound, philosophy and ideals about setting up to record a drum kit for a body of work. Both Darrell Thorp and Joey Waronker know the record-making process well as they have countless years of experience behind both of them. Check it out below.
The 1 hour and 15 min video is a drum and recording inspiration that hopefully opens your eyes to the stunning collection of mics that Lauten Audio have to offer. The mics used in the session are:
LA-120 V2 —Hi Hat / Snare Bottom
LA-220 V2 —Stereo Overheads
LA-320 V2 —Stereo Drum Room
LS-208 —Kick in / Snare Top
Clarion FC-357 —Kick Out
