Mono Overheads

Hey Jacquire thanks for taking time to do this. When you cut drums with a mono overhead do you use a mono room mic as well? Thinking of your setup for the 2013 Dawes album. I love how that record sounds.
Thanks!! Jeremy

Yes that's right, mono OH and mono rooms, with a couple room pics that are picking up different perspectives to blend... the stereo on the drums comes from hi-hat and tom panning

Do you leave the tom tracks wide open throughout the tune?
...as a bit of extra stereo vibe?
Or do you just mean the tom hits being panned.

Thanks for doing this, btw.

Tom tracks are not wide open .. Turned down to provide a little spread but keep things clear and punchy and then obviously up for parts .. maybe 6 to 12 db down from where they will be balanced for parts

Cool. thanks.
You went for the thoughtful, third...unforeseen by me option.

I think there's an extra lesson in this right here.

Thanks again...and you're right the drum sound on the last Alabama Shakes record is a revelation!
