RECORDING TIP
Triggering Kick Drum Samples
Years ago, I became hooked on using an electronic kick drum to trigger samples on rock, pop and R&B dates—even when I was recording an otherwise all-acoustic kit. (I use a Roland KD-7 pad, which is set up on a pedal next to the regular pedal on my studio kit.) This approach offers many advantages: Because the kick is silent in the studio, sympathetic snare buzz is greatly reduced, and the overall signal in the overheads is cleaner, with less kick bleeding into the other mics. Also, with no bleed from the original kick, the kick pattern can be changed or altered later if necessary—a highly desirable option. On any session (sampled or otherwise), the goal of recording kick is to get a solid, consistent sound—and here, the sampled kick adds, rather than detracts, from the drum kit sound. —George Petersen
