I'm about to edit the drum tracks but I can still hear the gate on the snare.I mean the typical "pss". Of course is better when I push the O.H. louder but is there another way to make it better?
I mean the HiHat. It's getting louder when I compress the snare and with the gate sounds psst.Originally posted by Cedar Flat Fats:
Please define "pss". Is it before or at the tail of the hit? Are you describing the snares rattling, the "zzzzt" at the tail of the sound.. If so that's what a snare is supposed to do...Snares don't go "BONK", like a lot of people seem to think ...... Fats
Well I use Protools system with logic software.Originally posted by Cedar Flat Fats:

The very function of compression is not to just limit max level but to bring lower levels up as well. This is the problem when using compression on drums. It can increase spill. I usually don't find it necessary to use compression on trap kits. IMO it robs the drums of their sparkle and impact. I love to compress the sh*t out of a lot of things but drums aren't one of them.
It may be time to start thinking of replacing the snare hits. If you are in DAW this will be easy. If not, post back and I will describe an analog technique for you to try ……. Fats
Sound replacer... It's a cinch.Originally posted by Cedar Flat Fats:
There must be a provision for acomplishing drum hit replacement in Pro Tools. I am positive I have seen a plugin for this application. Fats

The speaker shoud be an auratone or other single driver small speaker. Place the speaker on the snare drum head, driver facing the head, using something like the hub of a 2" tape reel between the speaker and the snare head to couple the two. When you play back the track it will excite the snare, mic this and record it to another track. Then blend the two together in mix...Old trick.....Fats
