Recording Drum Machines

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by count_funkula, Jun 1, 2001.


  1. How do most of you record drum machines? I am plugging the output into my audio card and recording the live play.

    Is it common to record the snare seperately from the rest of the drums? I like to add some reverb to the snare. I guess I could add the reverb with the software.

    You mean make a separate pass for the snare, on a different track? I don't see why that wouldn't work, as long as you have a way to sync start the second pass.
    If you have an EQ with plenty of bands, you might try running the reverb through it and see if you can find a setting that emphasizes the snare.
     
  3. I run mine into ACID (Sonic Foundry). Sometimes I retrack it by running it thru my bass rig for some extra 'thump'.
