Yup! The 3124MB+ is a serious tool for drums; and now with the Little Labs Red Cloud, 8810U8TERS pack
, things are going to get interesting in our studio. I usually use barrel XLR PADS like the Shure A15as, before the mic inputs for toms, but this might be a better idea for a lot of applications. They will be useful before the inputs, on the insert point, and after the outputs of the MB+ so I can boil 2520's for metal vocals, etc....I'm pumped!!
The MB+ is helpful for multi-miking anything really, I often use the Mix Buss for acoustic GTR stereo placement, [with our Electrical Audio M/S matrix on the inserts] and I have been known to use the Direct Sends of the box as MULTS while recording the mix buss, so I can Patch them DIRECTLY into COMPRESSORS AND EFFECTS so I can record two separate textures onto separate tracks. This also might be handy for stereo encoding/decoding, as you can record four tracks and go back later if start slamming your head on the console when you listen back to your balance.
