Ah. That makes sense. I'll chalk that one up to my dad's "engineering", then. I swear every time we record it takes him 30 minutes to figure out what mics are which drums. "Why are we getting so much of the snare in your kick mic? [5 minutes later] Oh, they're assigned to the wrong input." "Why am I not getting a signal from that mic? [5 min. later] Oh, the gain's all the way down".

Real quotes. Real life. Real Patricide. -_-
