      I just went in the studio with my ref, but unfortunatly I don't have any tips for you.
      The drums do all the work anyways. They sound incredible and I didn't do anything but set them up!

        Thats cool. I knew they already sounded great live and in my IE monitors. I use a four channel gate live for the bass drum and toms, but I think ill only need to gate the bass drum for the studio.

          In a proper studio you shouldn't have to worry about that stuff. It's all done for you by the engineer at the console. You go in, setup, tune, and play.

              For studio, just make sure your solid with your part against a click, and that you don't have any doubts about the part/how it goes. If possible record yourself before you get into the studio (you'll learn a lot!!) as a lot of players have no idea what they sound like, and are shocked (and often irritated) with what they hear back....and they're paying for the time. For the drums, make sure you're happy with the drum sound you're getting before you add any effects. The Ref series your using will give you any drum sound you want, so be careful in choosing sounds/tuning, and remember to take into consideration that the sound of the drums will change when you add instruments. Other than that, be sure to post up some clips for PDF! Good luck!

                Thanks for the tips guys, but i do want to remind every one that the studio we are going to record in is our own. We just recently purchased a Korg D3200 mutitrack digital recorder. We're just going to lay down a few demos for future gigs for now, then we'll start on a record.

                  I have the same system (Korg D3200) and it works great! Can't wait to hear some clips!
