Good morning, and thanks a lot for joining me on today!

If you don't own a drum set, there are still quite a few ways to record drums for your latest project:

1st. You can hire a session drummer who owns not only a drum kit, but also recording equipment to record all drum parts for your songs.

2nd. There are several great VST drum plugins you can use for drum programming in your digital audio workstation, and I will show you some of them in this article.

How to record drums without drums

Recording drums is quite different in comparison to other instruments. You need a lot of recording equipment like many microphones, cables, an audio interface with at least as many inputs as there are microphones and quite some know how on how to record drums.

Hiring a session drummer

The good thing is, that recording drums without owning drums becomes easier these days. There are numerous session drummers available who can record drums and drum parts for your specific songs.

Record drums with a VST drum plugin

A VST drum plugin can do the job too, and today's software plugins sound fantastic. Probably, nobody will be able to hear how the drum tracks have been created.

Here are a few affordable solutions for your DAW:

Addictive Drums 2 | BDF3 | NI Battery 4 | NI Studio Drummer
NI Abby Road Drummer Collection | NI Drum Lab
