Re: Unported kick/mic help. What I'm doing isn't working
If you also like what you're hearing out front, don't do a thing externally or internally to your bass drum, work on using the proper cardioid microphone with little inherent proximity effect. The microphones that you mention, depending on their distance from the head (sound source), will cause an exuberant increase in proximity affect. This will accentuate low frequency build-up. Some people like this, I for one do not. The more low frequency build-up, the less articulation from the drum because the attack is being masked by an additional 20 to 30 decibels of mush, depending on the microphone.
