Okay, somebody tell me what's REALLY going on here. I know how to mike a drum kit, I know how to get great sounds, I've got great gear and great kits and snares, but no matter how hard I try, the snare drum track always turns into a ride cymbal or hihat track. Ditto the overheads and room mics. I know these modern punk drummers are beating the living daylights out of their cymbals, but their snare drum always rings true on record. I know that good players hit the crap out of their drums, and barely touch their cymbals (in comparison), and I certainly get good results when I, personally, play that way, but what of these guys that just bash the $*^t out of everything? Somehow, the snare drums on modern punk records pop right out of the mix. I've been told to get off the wheel of frustration and use sound replacer, because that's what these modern producers are doing. Is this what's really going on? I'm at my wit's end here.
