Congrats to the winners and everyone! This was a really solid month, maybe just because having the song be only one minute leaves less of a chance for crappiness to creep in.
In case anyone was really wondering, the drums being so panned was out of my control as my friend Clint recorded them with just one overhead mic.
Here's something I would've tried: I don't know how many tracks in total he recorded, but since you only said one overhead, I'm guessing there were maybe two more mics for the other parts of the kits.
I would've put them all in the center, mono style. Bus all of these to a single track (in Cubase, create a group track and change the outputs on each individual track to go to this group track). Now create an FX channel or something similar (with no effects, for now), and use the FX Sends from the individual tracks to go to this new track.
So, now you have two tracks with the same audio.
Then, low-pass EQ the Group track a little to lessen the cymbals a tad. Don't go too agressive. Then, try high-passing the FX channel and remove a fair amount of the low-end and some mids. Now, on the high-passed track add a spatial effect like Cubase's Mono to Stereo, and play around. That could help widen up the top-end without widening the lows and mids too much. You'll have to play around with the EQs and stuff. Then you can balance the tracks' faders to taste. You might find a subtle, suitable stereo-ness that works in the mix.
And you can still go back and add some compression and stuff to the individual elements.
Again, this is just something I would try -- just throwing a friendly tip out there. If it ends up sounding weird and phasey, I'd have no problem with just going straight up the middle, summed-mono drums. Sometimes that's best. It's up to you.
