UA 6176 on kick

I've been using the 6176 on kick and getting some good results.

AKG D112 --> 6176: gain on pre at -5, compression set at 4:1, attack and release about the 11 o'clock position, input about 12 o'clock.

Any other users use the 6176 on kick. If so, what settings?

I have an LA-610 thats too slow for kick...though I have not had it long and will surely mess around with it in the future.

...I dunno if settings can be shared as universal, there are so many variables that will dictate settings (drum size, player, room, blah blah blah)

settings which suite for the application.... sorry, but I think sharing settings like gain, threshold and so on are really senseless on an internet-forum..... :

which kind of music you recorded with it and what kind of gear you used before?

I haven't tried, but I wouldn't choose a D112 with an 610-based preamp for an modern bdrum sound (too dark, too slow) if i have other alternatives .... but I guess this combination would be great for a more jazzy sound.

Yes, that compressor is too slow for kick.

I'm not a professional audio engineer, and use my gear maybe 3 hours per month, so I like when people share settings they use, it gets me in the ballpark.

With my current set up (Tascam 2488) I don't have the luxury of adding compression later, so I have to track with it.

Anyone else have any experiences with the 6176 on kick or drums?

What a bunch of negative Nancy's. This forum is filling up with them.
Why don't you guys share something useful instead of wasting your
time talking down to what other people post. Just don't reply.

I have use the 6176 on kick before. Not that i remember any setting because it
was a few years ago but it sounded good. On of my favorite kick sounds that I've
recorded was a birch Yamaha(I think) kick > D6 > 6176 > Apogee Rosetta 800.
Sounded big and punchy with a well defined note!

I don't see any negative posts on this thread -- except yours.

Those aren't helpful. Obviously he likes that compressor on kick and is looking for
settings to give him and idea if where to start. Not opinions on why he shouldn't
be using the 6176 or shouldn't ask about settings.

he was talking about the LA-610 being too slow, and it is, for kick anyway.
