    Re: Interface question

    Another vote for the Tascam US1641. I have one I use for mobile recording and am very impressed by it. It's USB2.0 and not firewire, but as long as you're not using a bunch of other USB devices you...

    Re: my PGDMK6 (shure) Drum Mic Kit

    Nice mics!

    Depending on how you want to mount your overheads, you could get away with a shorty boom stand for the kick and one regular boom with a t-bar for the overheads.

    Re: I plan on spending summer $ on equipment... help!

    I've been using the Samson 7 Kit for a couple of years now, and actually prefer their QTom and QSnare mics over SM57s. I even use them to mic guitar cabs with great results. For around $250 for the...

    Hehehe...

    Did you notice that there's almost no difference in volume or tone between regular snare hits and the rim shots? There's a TON of compression on those drum tracks. Well done, but a lot...

    Multitrack changed everything, and digital recording upped that change by several orders of magnitude. At one time, we were thrilled to record a performance. Over the last couple of decades it seems...

    Re: sore forearms

    A little bit of glutamine post workout can help reduce muscle soreness. I know when I started going back to the gym on a regular basis it made a world of difference as far as reducing muscle soreness.

    You've definitely got decent mics for the overheads.

    The last time I tracked drums, we used an X/Y configuration, I believe it's called. Two mics over the middle of the top of the drum set about a...

    You may want to experiment with placing the tom mics closer to the heads. That will have the effect of minimizing bleed from other drums and allow you to really place them in the stereo field for...

    Make sure the pad and mount are tight. A loose pad/mount can cause what you're experiencing.

    Yeah, I ended up putting an aftermarket humbucker in it. It kinda sounds the same, but with less noise.
