    How did you record those two clips?

    I would say it all depends on where you want to take the recordings.

    Well the first one there I did the drums with

    A MXL 604 and Apex Condenser for overheads panned in stereo
    they were 2 or 3 feet above the drums.

    A Dr. VX1 for the bass drum, i placed it right outside the bass drum.

    and some mic I don't even know the name of on the snare.

    The guitars were done with my MXL 604 about 3 inches away from the speaker cone. The bass was line in. ANd another question for this song while I'm talking about it. How should I go about recording our singer. He screams so I don't know how to record it right.

    The other one I just did the bass and guitar line in.

    The drums I put the Apex condenser 7 inches above the hi-hat pointing down. My MXL 604 to the right side 7 inches above the crash. I panned these to stereo. A Dr. VX1 on top of the snare 1 inch away, and some dynamic mic on the bottom 4 inches away. And another one of these random dynamic mics right outside the bass drum. The only thing I did different the drums here was run two cables from the mixers main out to both the inputs on my FastTrack Pro so i could record them in stereo, which i think sounds better. The first song there was recorded in audacity then i edited it in sonar. ummm this was all recorded with my multimix 8 and my fasttrack pro... and it was recorded in my basement...
