    pleaes explain the x y micing technique to me, and if you got a pic where you used it thatd be great. the tone soudns good when i dot it. i jsut dont know if im getting as much stereo seperation as i should be, or if im doing it jsut right or what.

    so please explain where your mics sit above your drums.

    basic questions: (all from looking at the drummer, as if you were at a show)

    -how high?
    -how far apart?
    -where is the right and left mics capsules pointing too?
    -which part of the kit is each mic over?
    -do you use a mic stand x-y bar or two boom stands?
    -how far back?

    thanks alot, hopefully ill get better.

    It is an acoustic guitar article, but it outlines many good stereo techniques with good diagrams.

    EDIT: Hey, what's up with the star rating on this board? I am a newbie here and haven't seen this on other boards.

    People tend to use the ratings to tell the author / participants that they don't like it. The best bit is that it's anonymous so if someone doesn't like you, you have to guess who it is!
