    it comes with only three mics i have two questions for you kind gentle ppl.

    1. Being that there are only three mics. (and it sounds great with only three) the one small problem would be mixing to only the capabilities that only a pair of over heads would have (not including the bass drum) . Are therye any techniques for such a way of mixing with two overheads only?

    2. Is it possible , based on expert opinion that these t25' are good vor vocals? As i states b4 , my dumb b*cth-ex. Sold my ksm27 so i have no more condenser. :^( or for anyother application?
    thanks a bunch guys.

    ps. i dont post on any other recording forum but you guys.

    1. If the dang search function worked, I would tell you to search the "Recorderman technique." Might work well for you. As far as mixing techniques, I think most of the work is going to be getting the mic placement correct before the mixing stage. You also really need a drummer who can mix himself, by playing the different drums/cymbals at their appropriate volume. Depending on the sound mix you were able to capture, you may or may not want to use compression on the overheads.

    2. Anything is possible, but you will probably have to decide how they work for you. Probably not for every vocal, but few mics are great for every vocal. I don't know.
