First of all let me say that I am very new to all of this but have found it very interesting. My 12 year old daughter has been taking drum lessons for the last three years and is to the point that she can play along with several songs. She learned to play "Hotel California" and I did the best I could recording it as a birthday present for my father who loves The Eagles. I recording her playing and then dubbed the real song over her and it turned out reasonably well. I would like to continue doing these little project with her and we had a lot of fun playing with them. My current setup is an Audix DP quad set of mics which includes: 1 X I5 snare mic 1 X D6 kick mic 2 X ADX51 overhead mics which I ran in a XY pair. And a Tascam US-800 interface all going into garageband '09. I have a Focusrite 18i20 on order as I am afraid that the Tascam is not going to work with newer software since Tascam has discontinued it and no longer supports it. That is the background, now onto the questions: Is garageband adequate for recording and mixing drums? Any tips for mixing drums in garageband with my mic setup (compression, eq, gates, etc) If I were to upgrade to a new DAW what would be a good choice for what I am doing? I am having a hard time finding tutorials or videos for my specific setup. Most garageband tutorials are for mixing virtual drums and most acoustic drum mixing tutorials are for 8+ mics. Thanks for your help.
