Me and my band were demoing some stuff at rehearsal the other day. For my style of mixing, I'd much prefer every drum close miked and as isolated as possible from everything, but this wasn't possible with the space and limitations we have. So we recorded the drums using just 2 mics (one just above the kick and one above the drummer's shoulder). Coming down to mix it, I want to try and replace the snare, kick and toms with samples, but obviously I can't just replace them from the track because it's picking up everything.
So how would you guys go about isolating each individual drum from the 2 tracks? I imagine I'll have to use an EQ and try and find a frequency specific to each drum, boost the hell out of it and use it as a trigger for some samples, but are there any better ways of doing this?
