Hi I am about to track some drums on 2", and i want to make sure that I don't screw anything up. This time it has to be perfect. One of the things i'm worried about is phase cancellation.....i hate phase cancellation....all my drumrecordings sounds like they suffer from it....don't wanna hear it anymore. I've heard some engineers talking about phase clickers....what's that?, and how can they help you obtain perfect phase between the mics? I plan to use these mics 2 451's for overheads 1 421 inside the kick 1 TLM 103 outside the kick 1 57 or 421 on the the snare top (depending on hihat bleed) 1 57 on the snare bottom 2 57's for toms 1 421 for the floortom 1 Soundeluxe U195 for ambience 1 Neumann M149 for ambience I need smacking ROCK drums, maybe a bit like the "Wheatus Teenagedirtbag song" for these recordings, so i think i have to work a lot with the ambience mics. I also plan to eq some of the drums in the recording this time. I've got some nice eq's to play with: Ashly graphic, Fairman, NP's. Well....i guess what i'm looking for is recording tips and techniques or other mic suggestions/configurations to try out for a modern Rock drum recording. I'm preparing the recording and sound tomorrow and track monday. But please post you'r tips even though it will be too late moday. See ya, and thanks for this forum.
