Preparing to record drum tracks for my doom projects debut album next week. Kinda nervous since I haven't been too active with drumming for a few months, but luckily it isn't too fast paced or technical.... also going to be my first real legit home recording. Still need to get the microphone placement PERFECT

BLah, I can only imagine, man!! Was so great of your friends to start that fundraiser for you, though. Hopefully that helped out at least a TINNNNY bit!

I now know why my Grandpa ALWAYS hated doctors and called them Crooks....

Since you're just doing a home recording, I'm assuming that you're just gonna do a pair of overheads, snare mic and kick? Mic placement is definitely important and you can find a good setup for that on a site like Gearslutz. I'd focus more placing the stands and mics in a position that doesn't get in your way when you're playing, and on tuning your drums to get a really good sound. With every kit I've worked with, it's always been the drums and the drummer that influenced the final sound more than the mic placement.

Aesop Dekker is a great example. His playing style and the kit he plays always sounds good as long as the engineer is mildly competent. Even comparing shit-quality live videos and the albums he's played on, despite differences in mixing and production, his drums always sound incredibly distinctive.

It was a lawn chair off the Titanic, but it is the thought that counts, and that's what matters.

That makes me the only Twin Cities area forumer for a while that regularily posts. I guess it's not too surprising.
