Re: Beta 52A problem
I can't listen to the clip right now, i'll check it out later but there are really no rules on mic placement. Play around with it till it sounds good. In the drum, in front of the drum, front of the hole a few feet back from the kit, what ever works. Sure most people and recordings default to a couple of standard spots but every drum/mic/room is a little different.
The only rule is; if it sounds good, it is good.
