Hey all,

Nope not gonna start any crap today.

I'd like to make one of these drum videos. Hoping to spend NADA. I have a video recorder. What else do I need? Should I expect the sound to suck. Any advice on getting a decent sound with minimal equipment. I thought I'd start by throwing down two or three different groves with some fills to see how it comes out. Advice on all angles of this endeavor are greatly apreciated.

Thanx,

John

Trial and error, basically. Set up the recorder in a convenient location and play a bit. Watch/listen to it back and see if it clips. If it does, adjust the gain, if you can, or move it farther away and zoom in and try it again. Good luck.

Kinda hopping for hints like If I need a digital recorder, Put a cotton ball over the Mic., Mufle all the drums, put the mic. in the next room. Oh well. Very few of you have posted videos so I guess most don't know how.

Funny thing is, I make a joke by calling a spade a spade (regarding Metal) and this place comes alive. Ask a legitimate Q about recording and silence.

That's cause you got on everyone's bad side early, and now no one cares to help you out.
Got a point. Need to earn respect to want help from us.

Like its been said before, trail and error work best. Record a bit, see how the sound is, make adjustments. I'm assuming you have Windows Movie Maker. Save often, it can sometimes crash.

well, maybe if you didn't have to insult everyone that popped up on your browser, and act like a complete douchebag, we'd be glad to share what we know

Whatever. I have added spice to this site. I have not insulted anyone or called any names. Can't say the same for many of you. Does my Mom run this site?
