      When working with drum tracks that include close mics and room mics, there of course is a time delay between the sound wave hitting the close mics and later reaching the room mics. For large rooms this delay can be significant.  Is it best to shift the room mic tracks so the waves line up coincident with the close mics, or is it best to leave the room mic tracks as is with the time delay in place?

        Hi David,

        in most cases leave the room mics in place or just change them in a way that the snare sound occurs at the same time.
        If you align them with the close mics you may lose some room effect and that was what the mics were for in the first place.
        OTOH the kit may sound even tighter and maybe that is what you are looking for.
