Thanks for sharing. That's good info.

What software and plugins did you use to record and mix?

Sounds very good to me. I've heard pro studios do worse with much more
expensive equipment. I prefer the dry raw sound [2] here for the demo.
Though things will be different in mix with other instruments.

I don't think you have to. Tweaking mic positions and adjusting the mix
will have greater impact in this stage.

If you really really want to waste some cash: one can never have good
enough Mics and analog preamps :) but you'll have to go up an order of
magnitude on the price-list for it to make a significant difference - if
any.

You're fine on the digital side. the Echo Layla has only 20 bits but
that's plenty here. Don't worry about this.

The weakest part of your setup are probably the KRK Rokit 5 monitors.
I've heard those in comparison and was not convinced for
mixing/mastering in general, but I cannot judge them for drum mixing on
a budget.

Note however, that this directly affects the processing
(compression/eq/etc) that you'll be doing and it may or may not be
possible to 'get used' to these monitors and learn how to properly tweak
details of the mix with them.

best,

No, you don't. but it's all relative. One can always suck less :)
