I have a firewire mixer with 4 XLR inputs and 4 stereo 1/4" inputs.

I'm using the XLR inputs for:
snare top
snare bottom
overhead left
overhead right

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

@original question: Yes.

Matt Halpern gets along just fine with one floor tom.

Rings of Saturn gets along just fine with just a 10 and 12.

do what sounds good to you.
