Last night I decided to point my Tamron macro lens and my RODE microphone at my small electronic drum pad for a few seconds and let the video roll. The most challenging and rewarding parts of home audio recordings to me are getting the proper levels, avoiding clipping, and making sure the tones don’t sound lifeless. Sounds easy, but not necessarily so. Luckily, as I continue to do these projects for fun, the workflow gets more intuitive.
Equipment used for the recording:
Tamron SP AF 90mm Di macro lens
Canon EOS 6D DSLR
RODE Videomic Go
Yamaha DD-55C drum pad
