I finally got to use the schools studio this morning (at the ungodly hour of 8am)

i was supposed to use a neumann U87 and pretty much just showcase what it can do.

didn't get much due to the stupid timeframe, but i did mange to get some pretty decent drum samples from the kit that was laying around.

and some recordings of my buddy alex doing some drop-ins for his radio show.
I was gonna get some trumpet and trombone samples too, but that didnt work out.

tonight is THUNDER OF THE GODS!, so i get to play rockstar with Caustic.
that should be pretty radical.

U87 is like the best mic ever for vocals. It's also good on brass. I wish I could afford one.

I've heard of people using them to mic amplifiers but that seems like an increible waste of a good mic.

Small diaphragm condensers will work better on drums, though, because their transient response is marginally quicker. If they give you a ...uh, U47, I think? - the little shotgun one - sample as many drums as you can with it because dude...dude they will sound awesome.

yeah, like i said, we were gonna get vocals and brass but couldn't swing it due to time issues.

the drums i got with it are pretty ok, but it was definitely nicer on vocals.
