2 Overheads (Cheap Nady's) into preamps of cheap Behr*(&(*& mixer, mixed as the main signal.
1 Kick Mic (Cheap Nady) into dbx pre-amp (heavy compression) into line input of Behr(*&$ mixer, mixed to taste.
1 Room Mic (AT2020) into dbx pre-amp (moderate compression to taste) into line input of Behr@#@^% mixer, mixed to taste.
Pan overheads hard left/right, and room mic and kick mic center.
I only have 2 inputs from my AD into my DAW.
In the box:
I am relatively new to recording drums and I would be grateful if some of you could share your drum compression strategies.
In particular, I'd be interested to know if you use compression during tracking, and if yes on which mics and how you set up your compressors.
The idea that I am currently pursing is the following:
in case of low budget project, i have to do recording and tracking drum sound myself. i'm thinking to buy ant good 2-bus good comp.(Alan SmartC2,SSL LOGIC FX G384,XLogic G Series Compressor etc..) also I like and use to dbx160. EL8 is good comp but it was not "the one".
Somebody knows any good comp of $1500~3000 range.
My first post here and was looking for some advice...
