Decided to finally utilize my Mackie board for recording, so spent the day tuning and mic'ing drums. I am sticking with a basic 4 mic setup (kick, snare, ohL,ohR), but am also close mic'ing the toms to mix them with the OH's. The OH's will be basically the room sound, natural reverb. Setup is this: Kick: Audio- Technica MB series; Snare: GLS Audio 57 copy mic. Reaalllly nice...; Toms: Audio- Technica MB series; OH's: Left; CAD Audio CM217 Condenser. Right; CAD Audio Large Diaphragm Condenser. I have the OH's measured to the center of the snare to avoid phase issues, engaged 100db cut on all channels, eq'ed to taste. The OH's are actually "waist-heads" as that is as far up as I set 'em. The left is about 18 inches off my shoulder, pointing down towards the snare (nice crack sound!). The right OH (or WH), is roughly 4 inches above the lowest floor tom, pointing towards the snare. This setup has given me an unbelievably tight, focused sound, and I love being able to use the OH's as "reverb" or room mics, and use the close tom mics to really beef up the sound. This is gonna save me a lot of time in post on the drums. I will post a sound clip once I get one down. Just wish I had a compressor and gate going in on certain tracks.........Does this setup make sense? Board is 2 channel stereo main out (USB for recording) so will have to really have these channels dialed in before tracking to get a good take. I also did the bass drum "woofer" trick and put one bass drum in front of the other, creating basically a bomb blast site! For tracking I cover the kicks with a heavy blanket. The lugs where I had to take the front and batter heads off to make the tunnel were taped off to keep from rattling. Any EQ or tracking pointers y'all may have will be much appreciated!
