    I was wondering what microphones and what setup you use for recording the drums in the studio?
    And if you have any preferences regarding DAWs?

    Hi Calle!
    There are a couple of mic settings we tend to use more often than others, one is the BETA91 in the BD. Also some quality condencer mics on the toms, but you need to be careful with the cymbal bleeds.
    Lastly I'm a fan of micing the snare shell. Place an sm57 directly facing the middle of the shell. That'll give you some interesting mids.
    Tune in to our youtube site later this week, and I think we'll be posting some studio info. We start recording Monday!

    The new record will be awesome! It "looked" (and sounded) great on the studio reports. What hi-hat are you using? Zildjian A Custom 14"?

    Thank you and that's correct.
    I use A custom crashes and Hi-hats on this album.
