Drum Recording Workshop 

What is a Drum Recording Workshop?


This is a day spent in a professional recording environment with drummer/producer/song-writer Matt Ingram in a group setting going through many of the core techniques of modern drum recording. Participants will be able to get a hands-on experience of a working drum session and also be able to get a detailed breakdown of some of the key concept of drum recording including:


 - Mic choice and placement.


 - Getting different sounds through mics/tuning.


 - The role of processing (eq, compression, etc.).


 - Creating the “right” drum part.


 - Getting in the right headspace.


Matt will also deconstruct and talk through tracks he has played on and produced with direct access to the multi tracks of those recordings for reference.


Also participants will be very encouraged to ask any questions and/or share any experiences, knowledge, frustrations, epiphanies they’ve had with the rest of the group.

Who is Matt Ingram?


Matt Ingram is a very experienced drummer/producer/songwriter who’s recording credits include Laura Marling, Florence And The Machine, Lianne La Havas, The Staves, Jake Bugg, Marika Hackman and Rae Morris.


When and where is it?


The Workshop will take place on Sunday 19th May at Urchin Studios in Hackney, east London.


How long does it last?


The Workshop will take place between 11am and 5pm, so roughly 6 hours (with breaks for lunch, coffee, calls of nature, vaping, etc.). 


How is it structured?


The day will fall into three main sections, each detailing different aspects of recording.


These will be - 


Recording Techniques - so the more technical elements; mics, pres, phase, drum tuning/dampening. All the real nuts and bolts stuff. 


Recording Practice - Here we’ll take an existing song(s) with no drums and go through step by step the process of hearing a song to getting a finished part. In this section as well as the technical, we’ll also go through some of the more fluffy, exoteric, conceptual aspects of recording (for they are just as important, arguably more important than playing in time). 


Recording Q&A - Matt will answer any specific questions anyone has in regard to recording. 

Who is it for?


Drummers, producers, engineers, artists, songwriters…really anybody that wishes to expand their knowledge of drum recording in a hands-on and practical manner.


How much will it cost?


The full price for the day is £200 per person, however to make this accessible to as many people as possible, if you're unable to cover the full amount, we are operating a pay what you can afford policy. Please get in touch for more details.
