Hello, I'd like a post about this. I will tell you, as simple as it get's, how I do stuff. - bd mic pointing to the center for nice attack or not for more boom. - sn 45º-60º towards sn center (no bottom mic) - oh at 1.8 mts height (if the drummer hits them hard) So, after that (good sound coming out), I just record and apply the following: - gate/expander - compression - EQ In that order to bd, sn and tm. Sometimes, on a sub-mix, I add some cool multi-compression (iZotope's oZone) and exiters. Is my chain right? Should I check additional stuff? What can I do, in the mix, to make it sound incredible? What kind of reverbs do you recommend?
