If you want more width and room to them, simply dial in the remaining mic signals until you get a sound that is perfect for your track. The interface is super easy to use, and having multiple mic positions goes a LONG way into capturing the depth and realism of these instruments and tailoring them to fit in your mix perfectly.
You can also simply use the close mics and send them to a reverb of your choice, so they blend in perfectly with the rest of your sample libraries. In the video today, we’ll take a listen to some of the different drums, and you can get a taste for the overall sound and detail present in the samples. Layering them all together will give you a bigger sound, and you can use them in any genre, though they are best for cinematic music and realistic orchestral productions.
