    Unless they're side address condensers, i'd have those pointing downwards over your kit if I was you, will give you a much better sound. And do the classic phase test with a length of cable, trying to get them equidistant from both the centre of the bass drum head where the beater strikes, and the centre of the snare head. Not an easy task but well worth it.

    I thought about pointing them downward but wasn't sure. These things are very sensitive, they can pick up my breathing. I'll try that next. What's the classic phase test? I'm new to all this

    Recording is extremely tricky at first. There is a steep learning curve, especially with all the hardware and software choices out there. Just keep at it, and ask questions/watch tutorial videos. Once you get the hang of it, it can be a lot of fun!

    Those monitors are great for home recording! Although, I would invest in a subwoofer, because those tiny 3.5" mid/bass drivers aren't going to give you much low-end at all. You won't be able to accurately gauge how your bass frequencies actually sound, since those speakers can't reproduce frequencies lower than 80hz (your "thump" or "body" of the kick is usually between 30 and 80hz, depending on the drum, heads choice, and tuning), and I'd wager a guess that they have a pretty steep cutoff below 150hz. That cover sounded great! Tons better than my first recording, that's for sure!

    One thing you definitely have going for you is that your room probably doesn't sound half bad acoustically, with all the shelves and stuff that are in there with you; they probably break up the reflections a decent amount. Having a decent sounding room will do leaps and bounds more for your drum sounds than any piece of gear at any price point can do for you. Let me know if you have any questions, man, and keep it up!

    Can you provide some basic insight how you got to get all the mics lines up to the mixer and then again tonreaper. Then the editing of video and aligning the audio. As a new guy, maybe wanting to try this, how difficult and what tips can you share since you just learning?
