Hello all I am basically looking for some advice on how to mix/process multiple recorded tracks of the same sound source. For example; I recorded my drum kit with a total of 12 mics, 3 on my snare drum alone. I had a SM57 paired with a small diaphram condenser on the top of the snare, with another 57 on the bottom(inversed of course). Now, I basically want some insight on how to balance the 3 mics in terms of compression, EQ, and reverb. Also, I recorded my guitar amps with the classic 57 and 421 combo, arranged in a V about an inch from the speaker cone. Now, since this is rock music, I doubled alot of the rhythm guitar and panned each take hard left and right, giving me a total of 4 recorded tracks for 1 guitar part. I would like a starting point as to how to balance all of these. What I have been doing is having more 57 on the right channel, with more 421 on the left channel, but I don't really know what to do in terms of compression and EQ. Do I EQ and compress all the tracks the same, or do I do something more? ...I also recorded bass with a mic on the amp combined with the DI, for 2 tracks of bass...and two mics on the kick drum. Same questions as above. Thanks to anyone who can lend a hand.
