Pre-Production (Drums)

Today I turned in the first draft of my mix.  One note that I received was that I should bring the guitars out more during the solo.  We’ll be receiving peer reviews as well so I’ll be able to make more improvements based on that critique.  My drummer and I have decided to record Thursday February 9th.  I spent a little time filling out forms for my Thursday Drum session.  Below is a list of mics that I plan to use.  I am miking mt overheeads in Coincident XY and “RecorderMan” to see which sound I like better for these songs.
