Re: Garage band (imac) vs CUbase le 4 agony
Shopping results at gc:
1 AKG perception 170 condenser mic/livewire cable
1 12" g1 coated for side snare (ec reverse dot sounded too thick for a side snare)
1 16" Paiste 2002 thin crash
1 18" Paiste 2002 thin crash
A test recording confirms my thesis. By placing a single condenser mic below the octabans, it sound like each octaban has a mic. It brings out about 80% more low end than without one. Now the ban's really sound like Stewart Copeland's from 1986 synchronicity live, which was my goal. He had mics in every octaban.
The 12x6 side snare is a spine-snapper to be sure. The s-hoops are pretty cool, and this snare is an easy lock for a main snare (it thinks it's a 14") or power poppin' side.
