    Hi Kristjan

    I don't know how many inputs you have for your drums.   If you are just using a two channel interface, I can see that you are facing a challenge.   I'm way to lazy for that so I have ten channels going in.   But as for dealing with tom bleed what I generally do with the toms is I close mic them the same as I would in a live situation.   With each tom on it's own channel I go to my tracks and on that track I delete everything that is recorded on it except for the tom hit.  So in my DAW (Reaper) the track looks blank except for where I want the 'noise' from each tom.

    Looking forward to hearing how you make out.

    Good luck
