    I recorded drums to computer using a condenser mic and it seems to pick up way too much hi-hats. I had the mic high on a stand in front of the set. Should I have this problem?

    You might try asking the drummer to back off on the hat a little. Often times drummers bash their cymbals too much when recording. I find that they often don't hit the drums hard enough, and they hit the cymbals way too hard.

    I hate when a drummer is inconsistant with his hits. Then it makes compression a pain in the buttox.
