    To be honest, if you don't get the recording you want from a live drum recording, then you may resort to enhancing with drum samples.

    If you start from samples, well then you missed the fundamental goodness of what a 'live drummer' gives.

    Then you go to a point where you decide what is best for the recording and the type of music it is.

    If a live drummers kit does not sound good, then you enhance with samples.

    It the same ole thing... Shit in is shit out. But there are things you can do. Not the best option, but it happens...


    I know at least 3 drummers that are plumbers by trade. So the crack thing hits home for me. lol

    Crack and snap tends to come from the snares themselves: try adding a bottom snare mic as well, or get more of the sound from more distant mics such as overheads which capture a fuller picture of the whole drum.

    Having to EQ and compress a lot is normal, and not necessarily a problem. Compression is a big part of modern drum sounds: if you're slamming it, and it sounds good, you're doing it right!
