An old buddy of mine and amazing drummer, who played with Ben Folds for a while, is coming in to town this weekend to lay down some tracks for me. He's got a killer set of drums, we've got a very nice room with 14' cathedral ceilings and nice acoustic treatments. I have a plan for micing them, that I'd like some feedback on, please. Don't have tons of high end mics and pres, but here goes: A modified Recorderman approach with: Crown CM-700 mic two sticks' length above snare, going into L channel of Demeter HM1 tube pre Crown CM-700 mic two sticks' length over shoulder, going into R channel of Demeter HM1 tube pre Neuman U-89 a foot or two out from the front of the kit, going into my neighbor's API 500 series pre AKG D112 inside kick, up against beater (probably used to trigger a sampled kick) into MOTU 896HD pre Audix i5 under snare, reversed phase into MOTU 896HD pre (may not even use this in mix) The Neuman is my only LDC, the Crowns my only SDCs, although I might be able to borrow my neighbor's Baby bottle mic. I have plenty of dynamics (Audix, Shures) and channels of low end preamps (Mackie, Art, MOTU). Your Thoughts?
