Feb 1st :: 12 pm – 2 pm
Ian Shepherd will be talking about getting drums ready to record. Matt Sepanic, of The Sonic Factory, will also be on hand to give brief descriptions of what we have setup. This will mostly focus on things like tuning, kick drum prepping for recording, snare sounds, and whatever else anyone has a question about. This won’t cover every kick drum mic and why or why not you should or shouldn’t use a particular something with a something. This is more about the actual, physical drums…then with quick little blurbs about production. Any question will be welcome though.
This will be about making the drums sound good and then you use whatever mics you have at your place, or you’ll be ready for your next recording session. Drums that sound great will record great, no matter how expensive your mics are.
Ian has played and toured professionally for the last 20 years in every musical setting imaginable. Rock, blues, jazz, country, R&B, Cajon, big band, dixie land, buckets…you name it, he’s played it. He has performed on hundreds of recordings including dozens of full-length albums, commercials, movie and video game soundtracks.
Ian has worked with many talented and acclaimed musicians over the years including Viktor Krauss (Lyle Lovett, Bill Frisell), Merle Saunders (Jerry Garcia, Miles Davis), and Grammy award-nominated blues artist Lucky Peterson. He toured and recorded with The Nadas from 2007-2008. Ian is an Evans Drumheads and Promark drumsticks artist. He is currently living in Indianapolis and is working with Jason Sturgeon, Corey Cox, Troye Kinnett(John Mellencamp) Jai Baker, Randy Melson and rising country artist Jessie Brown.
