I'll be getting a 7-mic pack (1 Bass, 4 dynamic for snare/tom, 2 condenser) for $265 but most of the mixers I've seen that have 7 or more mic inputs cost well over $400.

    How can I improve recording?

    I recently recorded and uploaded a video of me drumming to YouTube. The problem is the quality at which the video comes out, I'm only using an iPod 4 which has a tiny microphone and struggles recording the drums and especially the cymbals which cause lots of distortion. Is there anybody who...
