I know I'm going to get bitched at for this thread because for one I'm probably the thousandth person to make a thread about recording drums. And second I'm going against common knowledge of recording drums. But bear with me here.

Ok, so my band is probably going to get a Toneport UX1 (thanks moody ) but I'd like to use real drums even if they aren't going to sound the best. We've already made up our mind that we don't have enough cash for a bigger set up with more mics, so here are the couple questions I have.

1.) Would it be possible to rig up adapters and/or a splitter to the guitar input on the Toneport for more mics? I know even if it worked it would probably sound crap but I at least am going to try.

2.) If that doesn't work out what would be the best way to get drums with one mic? If I took a guess I'd say an overhead pointed at the kick? Or somewhere between the kick and the snare. Now I know this is a terrible way to do drums but we don't have money for more equipment and I would like to have our drummer do the stuff instead of a machine.
Rock On

One mic = trial and error. No easy answer, really. As a general consideration, though, in line with the center of the kit so you pick up a balanced sound.

Rather than futzing about with adapters and stuff, get a really cheap (like $50) mixer and expand your possibilities. Even the cheapest mixer out there will be better than a bunch of adapters.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
