Default Re: Editing tom tracks - your approach?

I edit them out (and never use gates) because it cleans up the sound tremendously. When all those different sources hit all those different mics at different times, the kit can sound very messy. Removing the time between tightens it up a lot. As long as there are overheads and room mics, there's always enough organic material to fill in.
