    Sign in to disable this ad
    Ive got a pearl export 5-piece with ride crash and hats.
    the set is in a room that is 16 feet wide by 60 feet long
    and the set is all the way at one end. My mics are as follows- 1 sm57, 1 sm58, 1 sm81, 2 cad ndm10, 1 cad ndm11,
    and a cad 22. I have a mackie 1604 mixer and I want to record to a single track on a 414 porta studio. So my question is- is the kit in a suitable position, and which
    mics will work best where given the fact Im busing to one
    sub out

    food for thought,

    if the ceiling height is 8ft, you're going to have a room resonance problem. with the width at 16ft and the height at 8ft, those two are multiples and thus a resonance build-up.

    565/8 = 70hZ

    565/16 = 35

    so you're going to have problems at

    70 140 210 and 280 Hz
