    Hey guys!

    I'm quite new to this whole recording-mixing thing. I try trough trial and error for about two years now. I write and record my own stuff in cubase 5 via Line 6 POD x3 and I use superior Drummer and Trilian for bass.
    Here is some of my stuff: soundcloud.com/davidschindler

    Saosin is my all time favorite band and i absolutely love the recording on their self titled record from 2006.
    Especially the drum sound.

    I wonder how one can get the drums to sound to full but still tight?
    Can you tell me which direction I should try there?

    thank you,

    It sounds like they used drum replacement/enhancement, which means that you either add samples to the snare, kick and/or toms or replace the original tracks completely.
    This is common practice with this kind of music. Especially Chris Lord-Alge does this a lot and he did mix the album. Funny, I was pretty sure he did mix this, even before I googled it. It's got his trademark sound.
