i got it now, thanks.
thanks, i understand it now.
I was searching for some overheads in not killer prices and found something better than akg c1000.
What would you say about M-audio pulsar II or Rode NT5. they booth are in similar prices.
also if you have any suggestions I will appreciate
and for kick drum I will probably stay with akg d112.
Sheesh these nubs.. Track everything like you want. 4 mics, it's easy. Kick, duh, snare, duh, OH L!!!! OH R!!!. I only need three mics for your band to make a million dollars....
Im red level cuz Im an asshole.. btw

You might be surprised what you can do with three mics, if your room has a good sound. For some time now I've used SM57s or Sennheiser 609 as overheads (though I put them closer to my elbows so the high hat and cymbals don't overwhelm) and a Heil PR48 for kick and I've been very happy with some of the tracks I've gotten. To be fair, I'm a much bigger fan of toms than I am of crashes and rides, and obviously you would lose some top end clarity just using your dynamics, but it sounds like you're still getting started to an extent. I would think about getting a kick mic for now and experiment with mic placement. Remember, if you have a bad sounding room, condensors will pick up more of the cymabals, but it will also pick up more of the room. You can screw the grill off the 58 and use it as a 57, put them up as overheads, stick the condensor on the snare if you want, I forget which you said you had but be careful of the SPLs, it's not really necessary anyway, and get a kick mic. It's a good place to start anyway. Hope that helps.
