I've got a hankering to try some three mic recording techniques for drums. Here's what I have to work with: Room: 23' X 16' with 14' cathedral ceilings, copious OC703 and Ethan Weineresque bass traps Drums: mid-range 80s era Tamas with nice high-end Zildjian cymbals and a bad-ass 60s Leedy snare Mics: 2 X Peluso P12 tube mics, a Neumann U-89, lots of dynamic mics Preamps: 2 X SCA A12 preamps (API clones), SCA N72 (Neve clone), Demeter HM-1 stereo tube pre Interface: MOTU 896HD (nearly new Apogee Symphony I/O died and is on its way to Santa Monica - grrrrr) Monitors: DynAudio BM15As, Audix 1As, cheap boom box DAW: (not that it matters): Digital Performer 8.03 I'm thinking of starting with drums off-center toward, but not in middle of room, with P12s in cardiod pattern as coincident pair about 5 feet above drums going into A12 preamps, then the U89 near the floor, pointing at kick drum, the same distance from kick beater as the OHs, going through the N72 preamp, with 80KHz roll off. Then, I want to try Bleumlein pair with the P12s and maybe space overheads, taking care to have the U89 the same distance from kick beater contact point. I have only a one room studio, but I'll be working alone anywho, so it'll be a lot of adjusting, photodocumenting and listening. Any advice on what else I should try would be most welcome.
