I recently got some, but until now only used them on guitar amps (where I asolutely love them).
Yes I have been using them with the knee button engaged. I normally set the shape to 1 or 2. I have really love them on drums. My only comparison was the stock pres in my interface, but when I listen to tracks from before I had the 4110, I can tell a huuuuge difference. Here's a track where I used the unit on drums (just 4 mics) and on elec guitar. I used an NT1a and a beta52 on the amp.

Only 22 mics on the drums including the surround aspects. No gating or compression in tracking or mix sessions.

automata, I would love to hear what kind of tones you got using the Mojave and Cascade in Mid-Side. I have both of those mics as well and haven't had a chance to try this yet.

Minimal processing, some compression, no EQ, mixed with top mic and a bit of snare and kick.

Last night, going for an oldschool vibe:

top & side: 2x Gefell UM70s > UA4110
kick beater: Sennheiser MD421 > UA4110
kick reso head: C&T NakedEye Roswellite > UA4110
room mics: 2x gutted Thomann RB500 > GR500NV > API2500
front-of-kit: Mojave MA200 > Chandler Germanium > 1176
snare: Neumann KMS105 > Amek CIB (incl. some HPF & slight EQ)
toms: 2x Beyer MC930 > SPL Gold Mike

The snare & tom mics were added just as a safeguard for mixdown, but the Gefells, beater mic and (sometimes) stereo room mics make up 99% of the final sound.

Kit is a bit of a mixture. Vintage Slingerland toms with pearl maple custom kick and snare. paiste Giant Beat and Zilldjian A for cymbals. Overheads are Beyer MC930s, kick is ATM 25, snare tom is SM57 and snare bottom is C414. All went into Vintech 473 and BLA Auteur.

Sorry to disappoint you, but the snare had a KMS105, the 930s were on toms.

Here are the audio files.
The one called "drummix" contains all the others plus the snare track and the (EQ'd and stripped) tom tracks.
There's a bit of bleed from the distorted cello amp in the other room.

Yeah, we were hoping for a more papery "whamp", but especially the reso head was a bit old and would turn into a basketball when tuned up.

Did you try moving the mic closer to the edge? i think it sounds better to the side myself,seems to get more low end.

Live DVD shoot at London Bridge the past couple of days. It was a six-piece band with drums and percussionist, so I was tight on channels! Maxed out the 32-inputs; all pre's were 1081's in the 8048 desk.

Kick: B52A
Snare1: transformerless 57
Snare2: 57
Toms: M179
Hihat: SM81
OHs: 414B-ULS
near rooms (15' from kit): Ear Trumpet Labs Edwina

This past spring/summer I had the pleasure of working with a group called the Vulfpeck, doing live-in-studio sessions. Things escalated quickly in the quest for stuff that was fresher and nastier. Enter: the doggy cam.

This was a pretty unique drum kit - no toms, all heads covered in felt (through the hoops). Oh, and it's a children's -size.

Mono Overhead - peluso 2247 > Phoenix DRS > overstayer FET
Snare top - modded Oktava MK012 > API 212
Snare btm - SM7 > API 212
Kick - Shure KSM313 > Phoenix DRS

Rooms > Mono Altec 635A, Cascade X-15 (blumlein ribbon)

Y'all can see and hear it here:

Kore Studios, UK. Drums

From a session yesterday

Kick: 47 fet - UA 6176 - Tubetech PE1c
Sub: NS10 - Mono Gama
Snare: Josephson E22 - Chandler Ltd 1
Mono OH: Coles - Chandler TG2 - 1176
Crunch Mic: Bang & Olufson BEO1000 (On the floor, between the kick and snare) - Neve 1081 - Distressor
Stereo Rooms (Low) :Melodium 42b's - Neve 31102's - Vac Rac - Culture Vulture

We also ran a paralell feed of the B&O crunch mic into a Little Labs re-amper box and fed this out to an Audio Kitchen Amp with Marshall 4 x 12 in the corridor, then distance miked the corridor with 2 x 57s recorded with :

Neve 31102s - Chandler TG1

This was all tracked in our A Room downstairs and then mixed down on the Tweed Console in our B Room.
