Audix STE-8 Drum Microphone Package

The Audix STE-8 Drum Microphone Package features a total of eight microphones and associated hardware for capturing instruments and vocals in studio recording applications. The package is ideal for multi-instrument capturing, drum miking, ensemble capturing, etc.

The Audix STE-8 Drum Microphone Package is a compelling array of eight drum microphones that will suit a wide variety of needs for critical recording applications. This collection of microphones enables artists and engineers to capture the sound at the source, regardless of the type of instrument or genre of music. The Audix STE-8 Drum Microphone Package contains one i-5 dynamic cardioid microphone, two D2 dynamic hypercardioid microphones, one D4 dynamic hypercardioid microphone, one D6 low frequency dynamic microphone, two SCX25-A cardioid condensers and one SCX1-HC Hypercardioid condenser microphone.

Close Miking
The D6 for kick drum and the i5 for snare are considered must-haves for every drummer. The kick and snare are considered the core of any drum kit and the foundation for every groove. Close miking insures that they will be captured in the mix. Being high SPL dynamic microphones, the D6, i5, D2 and D4 excel at “close miking”. This miking technique is required in order to capture the attack and percussive sound of the drum. By having the mic close to the source of the sound, it helps to isolate and control the sound of each drum.

Overhead Miking (Ambient)
Supporting the idea that “less is more”, many engineers will use just two overhead mics to capture the natural sound of the complete drum kit. With two overhead mics, positioned correctly, it is absolutely true that you can capture the transients, tonality and balance of the kit in a completely phase-coherent manner. The SCX1 condenser microphone with a 21mm gold sputtered diaphragm, is designed with overhead applications in mind. Due to its cardioid pickup pattern, high sensitivity and pencil design, the two SCX25A “lollipop” mics can be easily positioned overhead to provide a nice stereo image of the entire drum kit.

The Blend
With contemporary music and with the volumes typically generated on stage, it is more practical and effective to create a blended effect of close miking and stereo image of the entire kit from overhead. The D6 will help provide the earthshaking lows and the attack of the kick; the i5 will reinforce the depth and crack of the snare; the D2 and D4 capture the attack and decay of rack and floor toms; the SCX1HC is the quintessential microphone for hi-hat. With the SCX25A for overheads, drums will maintain their sound integrity and critical presence for both stage and studio regardless of the size of the room or PA system.
