Moses Schneider: Drums With Character

Video Feature By Will Betts
Published August 2015

Moses Schneider has worked with huge international acts such as Pixies and Nick Cave, big-selling German bands Tocotronic and Kreator, and has made a name for himself as an author. His e-book, The Alternative Workbook — Or How To Pimp Your Practice Room (reviewed in the September 2014 issue), offers some excellent, practical and concise advice for making great rock and pop recordings on a shoestring. 
Over the course of this month's video, see why Schneider is called the "Einstein of live recording" as he talks about how to get a characterful drum sound — discussing the intriguingly named 'wurst' microphone technique and demonstrating the various creative uses of gates and delays.
