I use Ayottes. They're a great kit.
My method changes a lot, the last time I posted on this thread I was probably using a totally different set of procedures.
These days kicks are replaced by a single velocity sample from the tracks.
Snares are strip silenced, limited (retain dynamics, depends on whos playing as to how much), compressed (wave form shaping) and some eq (tucking in mid range annoyances, clean up lows and low mids).
TOMS on the other hand are an issue. They sound great in the overheads, great in the room mics, in the room playing but sound awful in the mics. I've tried 421s, E906 and SM7. Nothings working. What are you guys using? What general annoyances do you guys here on your toms?
