drum overhead mics
I know there's also software available that can apparently time align those mics/tracks, although I've never used it.
I am gonna record an indie rock band soon and I am not sure how to mic the drum kit. I want the drums to sound like Franz Ferdinand, Interpol or The National.
I've read that the drums in Darts of Pleasure were recorded using only 4 mics, so I started experimenting with 4-mic techniques. Do you think this is the way to go or would you rather record the drums in the traditional way, close-micing every drum + 2 overheads?
i was told that i'd better use compressor for Overheads when recording drum kit?
what do think of that?
