Nick Pierce is a master of fast, synchronized double bass drum playing. I love the power he projects, and the precision with which he executes the parts. Very few drummers achieve this level of control of the instrument, especially using all four limbs at this tempo. The Paiste Rude's sound amazing, too (as does the Tama kit).

The video below is a detailed explanation of his tracking techniques for Breath of Nibiru.

Today, many musicians have their own home studios. It seems as though much - if not most - recording is done in home studios.

But, just because it fits the budget, it doesn't mean that there is a loss of quality.

If there is any definitive reference manual for capturing the sound of a drum set, it is Recording Drums - The Complete Guide by Mike Major. In a world with an abundance of beginner level material, it's exciting to see a book which covers the challenge of drum set recording in such great detail. I've never seen any book which even comes close to comparing to this 382 page book.
