@Totonno Nevone, thanks for the tracks. This is not my genre, but I'll do my best 😉

@Anne Schutte thank you! I heard many pros (and also CLA) say that mixing a style of music different than the one we're used to makes us give the best. This is gonna be the case i hope! Cheers ;)

Man there are allot of overhead drum tracks, feeling a bit overwhelmed. how do you guys usually tackle this? do you even use them all? do you pan each one different? any help would be appreciated cheers

@Michael Schmidt I suggest using all of them and trying to get them blended together. With practice you can start to figure out which tracks you want to use and scrap (this will kind of be influenced by how you personally like to mix drums/how you want them to sound). But I wouldn't just start axing tracks if you don't know what to listen for, or trying to go crazy with gating if you don't know how to do it. Just focus on making the drums sound good and the other finer details will take shape later.

@Michael Schmidt inside the folder there's 2 high overheads (around 30cm on top of the crashes), 2 room mikes (around 2 meters in front of the kit, ear's height, crossed, so you can experiment with phase too), one close hh and one close ride. Listen to what the tracks add to the sound of the drums and make your choiches, and remove what you don't need, like other people suggested. As an example, i tend to prefer the OH hard panned Left-Right and using only one of the ROOM mikes, overcompressed and panned center to get that "big drum" sound. But really there's no right or wrong, just follow what you hear. Cheers!

@Adrián Quiroz, I also didn't have time to mix this song last week due to a wedding and some other deadlines. Maybe we can exchange our mixes at some point? I would still love to give it a try :)
