This video explains how noise gates can clean up a drum mix, and concludes the Drum Mic Tutorial.

***Higher quality audio***
Be sure to watch these videos in HD, because there is a significant improvement in sound quality over standard definition - however, YouTube's codec processing has recently started really muddying up the lower end frequencies (like the bass drum and floor toms), so HD sound is still not as good as the source file. Check out this link if you want to hear the audio at its best: http://vimeo.com/10619932
