Back on my Yamaha kit. Gone all '70s here. Moved my overheads into the traditional X/Y position, covered the drums in damping, put the kick mic right inside the kick drum, put in loads of damping. Then, it would appear, went a bit nuts. Now I'm knackered.

My remit with this fab retro template from Frank was to do a kind of Billy Cobham impression from his Mahuvishnu Orchestra days. I'm no match for Billy Cobham - few are. So I ...

mpointon Thanks, Johhny! I can't help it :| I never know whether it's over-the-top and just too mad for it's own sake! I'm also my own worst critic - awful habit, I know. +0

mpointon Thanks, Oli! I'm determined to get that '70s sound. It has to be said, everything at source being 'dead' like this makes mixing a lot easier! +1

OliVBee yes yes and YES :) +1

mpointon And the funny thing is that, although narrower, the X/Y effect on the stereo imaging is *much* better! I've also narrowed the close-miked toms pan to try and match their position in the overhead image. That seems to make a difference too. +1

OliVBee and no wonder why the X/Y is so popular hehe ... the track sounds great ! also love how you kept the kick boom under control ;) +1

mpointon For once! I've discovered just how much 'boom' my bass enhancement speaker disguises, so I double-check on headphones now! :) +1

mpointon I should mention that, once again, it's my cheap and 'nasty' Premier snare on the job here! It has a Remo Fiberskyn head on it but it just delivers punch where my Ludwig doesn't.

I need to look at the heads I'm using my Ludwig - supposedly one of the most-popular snares ever made!

I should also mention I'm back on miking the snare to and bottom again! Didn't have room to mention that above.

OliVBee that Premier snare is quite handy when it comes tocracking punch ! though i still love your ludwig better when character is needed ;) +1

mpointon I just need to use that piccolo more now! Now that I've sussed miking snares, I need to give that mother another airing. +1

OliVBee i don't hear you play with TWO snares ... lack of mics ? +1
Mars 17 2016 00:47:49
OliVBee
mpointon I've done a few with two snares. 54988 has them. The second snare is off to the right though. +1
Mars 17 2016 00:49:13
OliVBee
OliVBee your piccolo would be a great second snare ;) +1
Mars 17 2016 00:55:00
OliVBee
mpointon At the expense of the under-snare mic, that can be arranged! +1
