Because it's Friday: the WikiDrummer

This is one for all of the sound fanatics out there (including my son) who love the different ways that sound work in different places.

Software has revolutionised what can be done with sound, but there’s nothing quite like the real thing.

For this video the recipe is quite simple, place a drum in different places to show of how the location contributes to the reverb, play the same riff in each location, film it and then mix it.

  1. Too true, you can’t beat the real deal – we’ve got Roland electronic drums, they are brilliant but at the end of the day they are not a drum.


  2. Hi,
    I would like to let you know that we have just released his little brother “THE WIKISINGER”:

    A guy sings the same song in 15 different places including an anechoic chamber, a hall or a church. Hear what happens!
    and once again, no artificial reverb added.

    I hope you like it and we would feel honored if you helped to spread the word.
    Many thanks,
