On that note... This song is very "processed" and could even be considered a bit "overmastered". I believe Magician may agree with me on this. The is a definite disconnect in the drum part and I am trying to learn it as it is recorded but I haven't got it completely verbatim... close but Rina and I play very differently.
I will give it my best and post the drum track within the next two days.
Thanks everyone for your patience!

I agree with graffixron, this in gonna be an interesting mix to do, with a lot of detailed touches, but I can't wait to get it started!

My current setup uses a total of 12 microphones - all panned at varying degrees to create a stereo image. All mics are run into a 16 channel Yamaha board. Those levels are permanent and are not adjusted - because they are accurate for the kit. The output from that board is what I record and post. Just the raw drum track... no processing, effects, bus etc. That way the engineer can apply effects like reverb and master the track as his/her ears determine. As for me - I keep all tracks separate at all times and do my mastering from there. I hope this helps and thanks for the kind words!

also... this may answer some questions if you haven't seen it yet...

12 mics going into a 16 channel board... output to two XLR cables going into a presonus USB box to the terminal.
I use two overhead pencil condensers, each tom/snare has its own mic, and the kick setup.
It's not a complicated setup once you get each of the levels set... which took me about 4 weeks of playing around with it.
