Hi, I’m a recording “engeneer” (I’m not super pro at it). Each time I record a drummer, I allways have the same worry: will there be too much hi-hat bleed. I meen, mixing a song with sampled drums is WAY easier than mixing one with a real drum, the reason being hi-hat bleed in the snare track manely.  Are you drummers aware of the general hi-hat bleed issue? Is hi-hat bleed a problem on live gigs also, I meen when micing a drum for a show, you get pretty much the same problems as in the studio don’t you?
