Fake It till You Make It: No Room Mic, No Cry

Anyone who’s ever miked or mixed a drum set knows that a putting up a room mic—and getting a good room-mic sound—is unbelievably useful for shaping the tonal picture of acoustic drums.

There’s a problem though, one that rears its head in these days of declining budgets, where people often flock to home studios—or their own living rooms—to record drums: it’s not always possible to put up a room mic. Maybe your interface doesn’t have the real estate. Maybe a sloppy engineer patched the wrong input, and you got a duplicate of the tom track instead of the room mic.

So, you are getting ready to mix. For me, sitting down to mix is always the most exciting part of the music-making process, but I have heard many engineers and other colleagues lament that it is a necessary evil they wish they could avoid at all costs (and often do, at the cost of paying someone else to mix for them). Mixing can indeed be tricky, and like so many creative pursuits, walks a fine line that balances science and art.
