drum mixer


I am setting up my drumkit for recording, and I need an 8-10 XLR input mixer with XLR output---I only need bass-mid-treble, and volume controls---anyone have ideas on a good passive mixer without all the extras that I don't need?

Re: drum mixer


I will leave this to Tainojim as he probably has the answer to this question. In the mean time I will ask a couple of my sound guys what they would recommend.

Re: drum mixer


I found the mixer I need---ART (Applied Research & Technology) model MX821. It has 8 XLR (or line) inputs with volume and tone on each channel, as well as a DIP switch for selecting phantom power for each mic as needed. A single 1/4" line output is even better than XLR for my application. It also has an internal power supply (I hate wall-warts) so it uses a standard power cord. The best part is that it's less than 200 bucks!!

Re: drum mixer


I have my recording studio completely set up now---8-piece mic kit (kick, snare, 3 toms, 2 large diaphragm overheads, and a pencil condenser on the hats)---running through the ART mixer into my main board---from there I'm running through a Roland Cakewalk interface into my laptop running Sonar X3 software---I have my bass and guitar rigs, and 3 vocal mics running through the PA/interface as well, so I can record individual tracks, or record the entire band live!

Re: drum mixer


Have you had a chance to lay anything down yet?, if so how did the track sound?

Re: drum mixer


I have done a few quick tests just to make sure everything works, but I need to do a little more sound treatment to my tiny studio before I can expect much I record my guitar tracks using headphones, and they sound pretty good, but the drums are LOUD, and the sound bounces around too much to get a good recording---I'm going to hang some heavy canvas behind the kit before I do any more testing
