Unique Drums That Cut Through The Mix
Mixing Metal drums is always a challenge, here is why:
You are dealing with super-fast snare and kick patterns that need to sound tight and punchy, while working well with the bass AND cutting through multiple layers of heavy guitars.
Not only that, they need to sound massive.
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s another point you have to consider:
Are you going for a hyper-agressive, in-your-face sound, or are you looking to maintain the signature sound of the original drum kit?
Often, you can only do one of the two. You either:
A. Use sample replacement to achieve an in your-face-sound, but have your drums sound like thousands of other productions with no unique identity;
B. Stick to the organic drum sound, but risk your drums sounding weak and getting lost in a dense mix;
But what if there was a better way?
Scott shows you how to maintain the band’s signature sound and create massive impact at the same time.
By creating your own samples during tracking and processing them in an extreme manner.
