Default Yamaha Maple custom recording - dry vs. processed

I've been experimenting with close-micing in addition to the recorderman overhead plus kick method. Unfortunately my tom mics were delayed due to a train derailment(I'm not making this up, that's what UPS tracking said).

Anyway I mic'ed up my Maple customs with:

1 Pair of oktava mk-012's in recorderman position
an Audix D6 just in the kick hole
a Sennheiser e604 on the snare

I'm new to recording and just started experimenting with processing. Here are three files:
1. Alll four channels with processing (reverb, gating and compression)
2. All four channels dry
3 Control - just the overheads and kick mic dry

5 bonus points for anyone who guesses the song.
Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Sounds very good, all three sound clips!
Well, I`m pretty sure you were playing "The Hounds of Winter" by Sting. For this song and depending on the other instruments you would choose between a dry or a effectful sound.
When I remember the tune I`d even go for the fully processed version, it supports the athmospheric vibe very well.

Generally I`m not a huge fan of overproduced drums but in the end it depends on the particular genre, setting, situation and song.

Well done, good recording quality. Though your drumming could be more powerful in the choruses...I`d try to give it more forte then.

Thanks for posting! :-)
