In the third video in Soulsound’s Mixing FOH series (see Mixing FOH: Arriving at the venue and Mixing FOH: Walking the room for parts one and two), Jon Burton describes how to use two microphones on the snare drum – one on the top, or batter, head, and one on the bottom, or resonant, head – to enable the engineer to mix in the direct sound of the snares. There are phase issues to address here, as well as the usual gain, EQ, insert and routing decisions to be made.
