Fab looks at how to record a bass drum with two microphones and explores the benefits (and problems) of doing that.
Chapters: -Best positions with D112 + 47FET -Best positions with MD421+U87 -Best positions with M88+Royer122 -Checking phase relationships -Balancing the two mics -Guided comparisons between the different sounds, mics and positions
The attached zip file contains the audio examples of every single microphone pair in solo and in context with the snare and the overheads. Please download the files and use it to form your taste, experiment and help you choose which microphones you will be using next time.

More videos like this describing technical components outside of a song context would be great!

And what about the phase of 2 mikes? In the Exercise files the kick signal is already mixed. Did you shift the phases? It's very important - and didn't explained.

How is moving the mic compared to using phase invert on the preamp?

Thank You Fab for that;
"viewing time limit for videos has been extended to 100 years".
Your tutorials are the best in the business.
And your sense of humour is great.
A love that.
Now I am a better engineer.
Is it possible to make a tutorial for mastering.(the black art)
I saw so many video,but they just touch the surface.
Thank You in advance.
