mono overhead with stereo room mics? (drums)
I have been wanting to try a using a mono overhead centered over the kit along with far stereo room mics. I may try a 4038 as the mono OH and an sf12 in the room or spaced umt70s pair...
I am going to try it...but since I have never mixed this way or recorded this way I was wondering if this has worked for anybody else and how they liked it.
I think it might be cool to have a very focused close sound of the whole kit with a very wide ambient distant sound.
I tend to not like really loud cymbals in the mix...I like them smooth...but I love the sound of the drums in the overheads.
Plus the same old same old is getting boring...the way everybody records drums the same way...makes me want to listen to The Beatles.
