OK, so I am starting my own little studio (really little) and I am looking for somewhat cheap ways to get a really clean really powerful sound. My friend said he recorded with a guy that uses a small pro tools set up and uses triggers for the bass drums and toms. I listend to the recording and holy sh*t was it good!!!! I guess this guy built the studio on a huge budget and doesn't have all the greatest mics, but with the triggers it sounded really nice. He also said he used the snare trigger WITH an SM57. I guess they recorded the trigger and the mic as seperate tracks and jsut mixed them? real question time.... Will triggers really help me out, and what brand should I get, and what would I need to use them. I guess my final question would be "Is it cheaper than buying different close mics for the drums, and which one will have better sound?"
