ok here's what i've got to sound the best(or most like other production out there) KICK- goes these plugins in this sequence: 1. EQ (notching bad frequencies out, low/highshelving for thump) 2. Gate (obviously, isolating the kick) 3. COMPRESSOR (2-1 ratio, threshold with gain reduction down about 10db, attack is 23ms release is 120 ms and hard-knee. SNARE gets: 1. EQ (smoothing out the spectral reading, and boosting the sweet spots) 2. Gate (isolating the snare) 3. Compressor (ratio 1.6-1 reducing at around 6db. attack 4.5ms release 34ms soft knee) 4. Reverb (just to add some life) does this all seem right, or am i doing something wrong here? any comments are greatly appreciated!!!
