Default Beater striking position

Hi guys.

I just noticed that my bass drum beater is striking the head about 1"-2" above the center of the drum. Who knows how long it's been set up like that, but I seem to remember reading or hearing somewhere that if you strike slightly off-center, you get a little more tone and roundness, and a little less attack.

Is this right? Where do you have your pedal set to hit the head? Dead center?
