Need help on this project

  1. I am kind of new to recording and have a pretty big project comming up. I am set to record a Native American drum group in the future and am looking for a couple suggestions. For those of you who are not familiar with a drum group here is a pic

    I currently have an Apple computer and run Logic with a M-Audio 18/14. If any of you could give me suggestions on which direction I should go when dealing with mics in a cost-effective way.

    Thanks for your time!

    I have a couple of Rode K2's I've been using for stereo percussion with great results- there are many great mics out there that I am sure will work fine for the application as well, but the K2's have been doin the trick for me :D If you look around you can find them for around $600 ea. or so.
    I've read that the NT2A are a cheaper alternative as they have the same capsule. However, not having heard them I can not vouch for them as I can the K2. Good luck! 8)

    OH OH OH, please tell me you are gonna do it in 5.1!!!! I'm thinking that that format would give you great results. I think that a sterio recording of that would be limiting for what they are doing, by looking at the picutre I mean.

    That's a good point. This would seriously rock in surround.
  5. 5.1? I am game, but i have no idea what that is. I am kinda new to recording.
