I just purchased a drum mics, mics,a mixer, and about all of the other things I need to record my bands music. I'm in college so I can't have my drumset in my room so I have a place that is just a huge open room. I want to record everything in there, from guitar to vocals to drums. I want to know if you guys can give me some advice on what would be the best way to get this room recording ready, i played my drumset in there and everytime i hit the snare it sounds like a gunshot. Please leave your thoughts and ideas.

You definitely need one in the bass drum, even if the rest can be captured half-decently like that...
