Paul Koester

    Thanks!    The was the first time we played with the horns.   I think I just carried away on their levels.

    I agree the kick could use more substance.  I've just gotten spoiled, since I usually work with an 8 mic setup on my home kit.  But alas, social distancing meant I just had to work with whatever my drummer could do at home.  Since I only had the single XY stereo of the drums,  anything I tried to beef up the kick just had negative consequences for the snare and cymbals.
