    My little experience of live recording in small room is.. biggest issue is drums in other channels, most notably the vocal mic(s), not so much other sound in the overheads.

    Havnt tried myself to capture room in those occasions. In a multi track I experimented with the overheads were tracked with Lewitt 560. With that mic you can record both membranes and alter polar pattern in post. For that experiment it worked well using those tracks in cardiod for overheads and slightly delayed and reversed cardiod for room. That tracking room did have some height to it. An idea as I type... position drums close to door and drum room mic in the next room. had a sale on its live band in small room course just the other day. $5

    Good luck with your recording.
