thanks very much for your reply!
1) ok, that's good.... but I always have the impression that there still was a change ,though only a slight one toggling the snare auxbus ( where all 3 snares are routed to, panned center) between mono and stereo.
Or does the output volume change slightly when going mono or stereo because of panning laws? Is it that what I actually notice?
Otherwise it must be my ears then
2) ok, but: I don't really understand the idea the oh channel being a real recording: a recording is something fixed, ok, but this oh channel does of course reflect every tom or hihat, whatever ... that is being played by me. So the instruments are in this "oh recording" but a fixed pan information is given. I think the fixed panning for kit peces is also not always center but somewhere a bit left and right for e.g. the hihat, right? What kind of recording/ processor is this? No offense meant
Just not understanding.
4) I was just thinking that after routing out and processing the direct mics of the kitpieces what good are those 3 channels oh, room , amb anyway then as they only hold the kitpieces in their original, raw, unprocessed state. These three channels are not fed with the processed individual kitpieces. So... are oh, room , amb channel still useful then or should one then better set up reverb/ ambience VST plug-ins instead which would get the processed kitpieces routed into?
5) that's good. I just felt that those direct signals coming from BFD sound quite good even without much processing... so that made me suspicious that some compressing/ limiter/ eq was already added when routing through that Neve in Air Studios. But it's probably just the good mics, superp engineers and that Neve console that make raw samples sound quite 'finished', right?
I hope you can follow my points and it's not too confusing
Many thanks in advance and best regards,
