    Smile Good read guys!

    Does this work well in a pretty poor room? Say a 15 x 15 room with a little wall tretment and no cieling treatment?

    Yeah, the close proximity of the overheads makes for less room sound than a really high pair, but a nice balanced sound.

    Unhappy Oh I know

    I have only gotten 2 or 3 chances to practice mixing drums. Our drummer takes his kit with him cause he gigs around with others at times sooooo. I would love just a good basic kit (double kick, 3 toms and one floor tom. It's only money. That's what I tell the wife anyway.

    Not to say I haven't mixed drums live but it is turning out to be a different beast. The 18 inch kevlar cone subs are a little more forgiving on the kick than the car stereo is. Something about your body shaking that hides the less that perfect kick mix.

    I'll get it yet........

    hellllllll yeah!

    i just tried this out...and boy is it awesome!

    even with the "not-so great" equipment that i got! later today or tomorrow i'll mix what i got...and i'm sure you'll be surprised at the results...i know i was. Only thing with some problems is the Kick drum, just never seems to be loud enough in the mix...we'll see though.

    quick question

    ok, so i'm using this method, and it sounds really rockin.

    but it took me an hour or 2 to get it sound good. is there a way to balance the too overheads with eachother pretty easily? i got a 57 and 58 as overheads, panned hard left and rigiht (like said), etc. But my mic cables are different, and so they send out very very diffent volumes to the 4-track.....which i guess is the main problem.

    just wondering - and i'll post a rough mix of the tracks hopefully tomorrow.

    Cool

    ive heard in many many instances in pro studios they spend a whole day just setting up a drum kit and the mics and getting a sound dialed in....dont feel bad if it took an hour or 2....feel bad if you spend that long and it still sucks....

    with that said, maybe there are quicker ways to get it dialed in but i havent got a clue.....

    Part of the beauty of this is how fast it is... measure with sticks from snare to mic centers, then from kick center to mic centers, everything should be even...the left mic lower than the right, both pointed at the snare... use headphones to adjust the RIGHT mic until the kick is in the center, and you're done.
    Peace!
