Wow, it's a lot better Kevin.. I now hear the drum and the overall balances is way better.. also you let more dynamics happen and it's a blast how better it sound.Update ... (New file on SC above also) ...
One aspect that I'm more aware than before is to reduce phase problemes with mic placement.
Moving the overheads and or room mics a few inches can sometime do a big difference.
How are you micing the drums? I've mostly been using coincident overheads for the last few years. I time align them by sliding the overheads to the left to match the snare up, then slide the kick and toms to match their arrivals at the overhead. You can't do that quite as well with spaced overheads because the arrival times in the overheads don't match up. Of course it's not the right sound for everything but it is generally cleaner than a spaced pair.
