Well, its been a while! Anyway, here's the deal. Went to record a drum track today. Its a 4 mic, Glynn Johns type setup as far as micing. A pair of AT2020's overhead, an AT4040 on kick, and an MD421 on snare. These are running into a Mackie 1202 VLZ mixer for pre's only, and out the sends on the Mackie into a Delta 44. Here's the problem, which I've never encountered before, but some things have changed with my setup since I last recorded drums. The sends on the Mackie are pre fader and eq, as I understand it, so I'm relying on trim alone for any kind of gain control. So, with the trim all the way down, I'm still getting peaks at, like, 0db or slightly above. Not good. Everything sounds pretty great otherwise, so that's a good thing! I've done some tweaking with the Delta 44's controls, but will have to wait till tomorrow to hit them drums again. Anyone have any food for thought about why my levels are so hot??? Thanks! Andy PS Its good to be micing up some drums again!
