this was a blast adding my own drums in to this song please let me know if you guys like it! most of the percussion was done with a cajon
hope everyone has fun listening to this

The percussion on this is great! nice groove. Just a little spiky as the snare hit in the 1st verse but works super well when the chorus kicks in. Funny cause then in Verse 2 it works fine. Over all nice one man!LuketherParticipantMay 25, 2023 at 2:38 amPost count: 43

Thanks so much Patrick the cajon is a magic instrument in this song LOL Love your guitar solo in your version WOW great jobrentarootParticipantJune 28, 2023 at 7:42 amPost count: 252
That’s an interesting approach!
Can you tell us something about your mic-placement for the cajon? Everything I tried by myself sounded ghastly!
Good luck to you. 🪘Chestnut Mtn. StudioParticipantJune 28, 2023 at 2:10 pmPost count: 9
Hey Hey rentaroot Actually drums and percussion is the only thing i can play that’s why i focused the drums LOL
As far as mic placement, i used a Shure KSM 141 to capture the low sounds of the cajon. ( you have to make sure its about 6 inches away, or it picks up a lot of air)
and then used a LA220 To record the front of the cajon to pick up the slap of it
then i mixed it and cut the highs out of the Shure mic, and cut out the lows out of the the LA220, AND IT SOUNDED GREAT!
Heres a Drive link to see some pictures of the placement! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1vV2Ig2MdLmQbbrwy8QedSgSAOg70FIzc?usp=sharing
Hope this helps
thanks from Josh

Thank you Josh for the very detailed insight-view! I guess, my bass-mic was far too close inside of the cajon. For the slap I had a matched pair in xy-stereo (too far away), so probably there were some severe phase-issues. In addition, my room is not perfect and quite small. So, next time I’m going to chase my wife out of the living room and try your setup… 😈
Best regards, Jens.
