I'm going to be recording an EP over the holidays (taking advantage of everyone being home from school for a few weeks), but I'm not sure what the best way to approach micing the drums will be. My drummer will be using a stripped down kit composed of kick,snare,high-hat, and maybe a floor tom. But I have at most 2 xlr inputs I can use. the mic's I have are a sm58, samson c01, and a samson Q8. I have it on good authority I'll have a Rode Nt1-a after xmas too... given those 4 mics, and only 2 inputs, what combination/placement would you guys suggest using?? I'll also be needing to mic an upright bass too, but im not sure what the best way to do that would be if anyone has any insight.
No announcement yet.
