Default Re: Drum Recording...

Not sure what you mean by cheap but you can get a really nice sound with three mics using the Glyn Johns method. Maybe an sm57 for bass and couple of 58's for overheads. If your interface does not have enough inputs you can probably find a used mackie or behringer mixer for cheap. You could put something like this together for $200 to $300 hundred. If you have an interface with multiple inputs and built in preamps you do not need a mixer which may be a better way to go.

The zoom sounds great when taking "live" videos of you or your band and is really easy to use but not what you would want if you are trying to lay a basic drum track into DAW software.
