Imagine Dragons Commission Taikos.com To Craft A Large ODaiko (Taiko Drum)
Imagine Dragons front-of-house engineer Scott Eisenberg was recently interviewed by Mix Magazine on the challenges of mixing the Imagine Dragons tour.
” With this Taiko drum, we were trying to figure out how to get the best low end out of it while also hearing a good attack. But that drum puts out such a wide frequency array [laughs], and it’s got an enormous sustain, so gating it was really difficult. There were nights I just had to gate it manually—literally turning the fader up and down—because the sustain would hold the gate open for 30 seconds.”
