I was watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt6qbN3pwWs
and the drums when he is playing sound absolutely amazing. I see no mics anywhere... so I assume everything is overheads.
This is the kind of sound I'd like to have when my band records demos, but my recordings never ever sound that clear.
I use an Onyx 1640i into my macbook running Cubase.
the mics I use are all dynamic (sm57s, sm48s, audix bass mics, etc). perhaps that's the issue?
I use a 4-mic Glyn Johns technique most of the time.
what kind of gear/methods would produce that crystal clear sound?
