Hi! Im new around here. Im from Argentina and im working on the recording of a pop punk band. Ive been listening a lot of records and i noticed that the sound of drumms is very "plastic" and "upfront" or "in-your-face", i dont know how you call it,(everything sounds this way, guitars, vocals and bass) but ive been watching recording diarys and they record real drumms, doesnt sample it(i think). I wondering how they get that particular sound. if someone can help me I would appreciate it too much. tanx! some exaples: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC_jS01Klhg&feature=related YouTube - Saosin - Voices (Alternate Version) i know that it has low cuality but im asking for the particular sound not for the general cuality. sorry my english.
