Can I improve the sound of my hi hat for recording?
I want to record live drums for DIY music projects. I have a typical beginners kit (I am not really a drummer) and the hi hat in particular sounds a bit pants. I was wondering if it can be fixed in post somehow? I am not sure if have enough mics for individual drums. I have 2 sm58's and 2 behringer B5 stick condensers.
I have a 4 track interface.
I would rather mic the kit with one left and one right, and two for the kick, one in front and one behind.
Anyway, to describe my actual problem.
My hit hat does not sound at all "Swishy" it does not make the "tschsshhh" sound you would expect, but more of a click click tap tap sound. All my other drums/cymbals are satisfactory.
