I tried the demo of that today. Tried it a few years ago and it crashed more often than not. My finding today were that I could get good results on the bass drum. Tone of the drum didn't change, just reduced bleed. I couldn't get the toms to work. Made them really dull and lifeless as soon as you removed any of the bleed. The surprise was it worked on the hi hat to get rid of the snare. I really wasn't expecting that.

If people didn't commonly use microphones that "feature" utterly wretched off-axis response (I'm, looking at you, SM57 and MD421) then bleed wouldn't be a problem, or as much.

And the plugin's ability to remove snare bleed from a mic that is utterly superfluous in most situations (hi-hat) fails to impress me.

I don't know about the software in the OP. But I will stick up for the hi-hat mic. Usually the hat is plenty loud in the other mics of course, but sometimes I like to bring up the hat fader juuust enough to give it a more precise locality in the stereo field. I will do this sometimes even if I'm being minimalist about the rest of the kit, i.e. no dedicated close tom mics.

I dunno - using (more or less) Weedy's mic setup I generally find it located pretty precisely next to the snare drum - exactly where I want it.
