    I was hoping to rob some of you of your hard work and experimentation. I have an M-Audio Large Diaphram, Blue Bluebird, AkG perception 150 cardoid, shure cardiod, and an sm58A Beta. I have a sure m-268 4 channel mixer and an Mbox2 which will allow me to use all 5 mics. What would be a solid arrangement to at least start tracking with (i.e. Mic placement, which mic for which drum, etc.) Also, depending on what drum/mic you would place with significant importance, I can run directly into the other input of the MboX allowing for individual editing and all that. HELP!

    p.s. I have a kick, snare, tom, floor tom, hi-hat, and ride. I also have another drum set, the reason I mention that is because I saw somewhere else on this forum where someone suggested making a woofer type rig with a second kick. Any truth, value, to that statement?
