I have a great sounding studio drum kit (Ayotte/Paiste) and a great sounding wood/concrete/carpet room that measures approximately 20'x22'x11' high with a vaulted ceiling. It's professionally spec'd and acoustically treated (bass traps, dimensions, etc.) I know it's not large by drum room standards, but it sounds large and powerful. However, I've never been able to translate the power of the room sound to "tape" (PT Mix +). The drums are usually along the long wall. I often place the OVHs like RecorderMan suggested with additional snare, kick, and hi-hat mics (love the blend!) For room mics, I have PZMs, ribbons, large & small dia. condensors available to me. Any suggestions on placement? Pattern shape? It's often said, "walk around the room and if the drums sound good there, put a mic there." That doesn't seem to translate for me. Is it more an issue of it will NEVER sound as good recorded as it does in the room? Thanks for any suggestions.
