Hi, this is my first post Attempting to record a few songs, a fellow mate and I are trying to record some natural drum stuff, think like Stone Sour, nu metal kind of music. At the moment, I have and audient id14 and planning to add a behringer ada8200 to expand to 10 pres in total, drummer has a couple shure drum kits PGDMK6-XLR, that is more than enough for our purposes. We use reaper as DAW. Last days for demoing and practicing recording the songs, I recorded some mono drum sesions with two mics, one pg81 as a general overhead and one pg52 inside the kick, found the pg81 is decent for overheads, but had a hard time with kick, I had better results with a sm57 but it lacks low end, so the drummer possibly will buy an audix d6 or a seinnheiser e602. I really don't know if it is an advantage, but the drum is in a very large untreated room (think 100 square meters or 1000 sq ft), so we put the drum not exactly but near the center to avoid the concrete wall cause reflections, floor is some kind of concrete and ceilings are around 3m (10 ft) high and made with a cheap plastic. The drum is a really decent ddrum kit with good cymbals, so the source i think if it is well tuned, will no make any problems. So if any of you have some tips, regarding to the room condition, because I didn`t find too much info about it. Is it critical to treat a large room?
