Thank you Tim!I am only going to comment that the claps starting at :35 should not be in there.
…but I hope you're not holding back
I always appreciate reading your honest comments at the forum!
Thank you HowlingUlf!Then I sat down and start to find the most extreme positions to destroy the sound and then build it up.
Yes that’s what I did also, I think single drum hits are great for getting a rough understanding of what the different parameters/knobs do.
...and I absolutely agree, there’s always soooo much more to learn
Thank you Andrew!Have you experimented with any SSL type compressors?
I have not tried SSL but it sounds like a great idea!
Lately I have been using Izotope Neutron which is also sort of a channelstrip
I just listened to the before and after again but I actually don’t think that there’s much improvement, perhaps its to subtle.
The drums sound a little different/punchier but something ugly is happening to the sybmbals, maybe those should not be parallel compressed
Possibly the screener wasn’t referring to the drums at all
