A Drum Room With A Difference! By Sam Inglis
Published January 2021

If you want a better drum sound, you can change the drummer, or the mics, or the drum kit... but what about the room?

When Joss Worthington set about rebuilding his studio, he decided to create a space that would inspire musicians and allow engineers to shape the sound at will. In this SOS video, Joss and Chris Smout of Studio People show us how they turned the idea into reality, with the help of drummer Lee Hudson.

Audio Examples

You can download the Pro Tools multitracks to see what difference it makes — anyone who doesn't have PT can just take the WAV files out of the Audio Files folders.
