    Here are the drum files with the untreated room:

    Everything is running through a Clarett 8PreX all the 500 series are coming in through a SwissSonic AD24 ADAT out to the Clarett.

    Cymbals: Soultone Gospels 14" hats, 17" & 18" Crash, 22" Ride, 17" FX crash.

    Room is 22' wide 33' long with 14' ceilings with 2 4'x8x8" gobos behind the kit to try to take some of the room out of the close mics.

    Hopefully this is enough information to paint a picture of what you are hearing in the files.

    I'll try to get some pictures for perspective once I clean up everything.
