Since I'm new to home recording, obviously I have questions about sample rate, record format, and micing. My primary instrument is drums...I know, what a chore! It seems the consensus is 24 bit (since my Firestudio Project supports it) at 44.1. Any recommendations? As far a micing overheads, is the XY configuration better than the 3 to 1 technique? And the kick...most research states put the mic about 2/3 the way into the bass drum. When I mic at the hole, it seems muddy and shallow. I know your ears ultimately dictate most recording settings, mic placement, etc, but just looking for tips and recommendations.
