Completely tidied and re-built my recording rig today so it looks less like an alien autopsy and more like a recording setup. Testing slight changes to my mic positions and, most importantly, trying out miking the snare both top and bottom to try and put some more rattle into it - the snare always disappoints me in the recordings I upload so I'm trying to get more pizzaz into its recorded sound.

mpointon Thanks, Marc, for the comprehensive reply. I've reduced the panning on the overheads - well spotted! Reverb is my next issue to address. I need to find a decent one! +2

mpointon Free! I've got hold of a couple of reverbs I'm testing. The existing ones don't like the transients of snares, etc. One I'm playing with is called Ambience and it seems pretty good. Once I have a new job I'm going to get a few paid-for VSTs/AUs. +2

mpointon Thanks, Oli. The snare-side mic really makes a difference but there's a fine line between the Estelle and it having no effect. +1

Love this template of yours, fine drumming !! I have downloaded it & am going to ''pump it up'' to 150BPM to add this bass thing…
I really hope you don't mind me taking this liberty, but it's just so PERFECT..
If for any reason you don't like it tell me & i'll pull it out, no probs - deal ? ;)
