This image is documentation of a drum set that I built specifically to record the sound of rain.
The sound of the drums has been collected in multiple ways. One is to channel the sound, via contact microphones to the inside of the car which are hooked into the PA and recorded along with both the ambient sounds inside the car and external noises from the moving vehicle. This results in a one-track stereo recording.
Another is to record directly from each mic into the PreSonus Firepod. This results in six mono-track recordings.
All sounds are recorded from inside the moving vehicle. Some songs are composed live while the car is moving; other compositions are mixed in the studio.
