Focusrite Academy is Focusrite's new free online video tutorial site dedicated to teaching music production newcomers the art of recording acoustic and electric instruments of all kinds.
A spokesperson had this to say, "In these days of prefab loops and multisampled virtual drum kits, if you really want your drum tracks to stand out, you need to record them yourself. In Focusrite Academy's Recording Drums series, you'll learn how to produce professional sounding live drum kit mixes on any budget. The first set of videos in the series focuses on setting up the drum kit itself and recording it using one, two, three and four microphones. You don't need any recording experience at all to get started – just sit back, relax and click here. And don't forget to share Focusrite Academy through your social media networks – great drum recordings should be a universal right, not a privilege."
