Drum Replacer on Overhead?
I've got a drum recording and I'm working on replacing ... well, everything. Mostly for technical practice. The drums are an easy replacement. BUT, there is ONE overhead mic. I'd really like to replace all the cymbals and get some seperation. Now, I'm thinking that I'll try to isolate each cymbal on its own track, using EQ, before I slap drum replacer on it. But, I'm wondering if there are better ways. It seems like this might take days, removing unwanted transients, adding wanted transients, and so forth. I really don't want to quantize the kit and add in my own midi hits. I mean I've got a real drum performance, why revert it back to something I can do with a piano role. I want to keep the performance.
