I tracked a record over a series of very late nights, and during one of the sessions, we were looking for really simple backbeat but had no snare on hand. Being that it was about 4 A.M. by that point, no one was picking up their phone, and there really wasn’t anywhere we could go to get one. After about an hour of trying different sounds, we were sitting around, discouraged, until the artist found a filing cabinet out in the office, filled the top drawer with keys, and smacked the top with his fist. I threw up a Blue Woodpecker mic about a foot away, and it ended up being exactly what we needed. Combine that with a Blue Mouse on an empty accordion box as a kick, and to date it’s still my favorite percussion sound I’ve ever gotten. Jack Zoephel, Aderra.net
