This is kind of a weird one, I suppose, but I'd be interested to hear any thoughts on recording outside. Actual recordings made outside would be even better. Why, you ask? I'm going to record some drum sounds, and I don't have a good-sounding room to record in. I also don't have the ability to really deaden a room effectively. In the past, I've recorded drums at 2 separate home studios, but the bad room sound really turns me off. Both were suppposed to be deadened, but both had that "cheap room" sound anyway. Recording outside seems like it would have some interesting effects. There's pretty much no reverberation outside (at least with close mics), and I imagine things would sound very "natural" and non-hyped, which is something I like in a drum sound, in contrast with most music these days. I guess there may be some problem with low end; it seems like the kick drum might sound a bit unfocused and thin without walls to build up sound pressure. This is all speculation, of course, and I'm not a very experienced recordist. I should probably say that my music is a bit weird to begin with, so I'm not afraid of, and actually seek out, odd results. Any thoughts? Anybody done this before?
