    I've read that tool among others record their drums splitting the signal from the snare, kick and toms and sending it through a PA.
    Does one need exceptional well sounding speakers to get a good result or will most do? I really like that sound so it'd be fun to try it sometime. :)

    what does PA stand for?

    I would like to try this one day, I imagine it is the true way of overcoming and 'dominating' the cymbal sound that spoils a lot of drum ambience 'room' tracks..

    Any PA will do I am sure.. point away from kit I reckon....

  4. You probably don't need great speakers to do this- the crappy PA speakers are likely to give the sound some of it's character. Try guitar amps as well. Cheers, Doc.
