somebody told me that u should have toms, tuned different for the studio, than u would have them tuned for a show. any ideas or opinions? should i go for a lower tuning 2 get a deeper sound?
Agreed! Just make sure that your kit is tuned and if you have a good sound guy, trust his ear. The sound guys can do alot with good clean tracks. Good luck!drummert2k":26jnrmte said:no, its not really a pitch thing. and many studios use differant mics and condensors and software and hardware that will also effect your sound. the environment has a lot to do with it also. and watch using studio rings and stuff. they tend to have a little buzz from vibration. biggest mistake i hear in studios is drummers muffling their drums too much and making them what they think is thumpy. on the disc it sounds lifeless and flat. the engineer will have all kinda of goodies to tweak your sound. get to the studio and get good tones and let the engineer or producer worry about gating and that kind of stuff
