Some questions on old drums, did you ever apply any reverb (plate, echo chamber) or delays at all to the drum buss? I know some do, while others use it on snare only, some keep it 100% dry.

In general, how much kick to you preserve on the OH mics? Say you could be high passing from 75Hz upwards...

I understand this can be very subjective and personal, I always love to know what other engineers were doing.

Thank you again.

Sometimes I would add some plate to toms and print it along with the overheads and hat. I usually kept the snare dry.

If I want to get rid of any kick in the OH's, I'll try to do it by covering the kick, in some way. If it wasn't covered, I sometime take some 500cps out of the OH to get rid of the attack of the kick.
