Member for

Guys..im having a practise mixing here.. I recorded a local rock band (they sounded like alterbridge/creed).

Here's my DRUM TRACK PANNING.

KICK - center
SNARE - center
HATS - center
TOM1 - 30% R
TOM2 - 30% L
FLTOM- 50% L
OHEAD L - 100% L
OHEAD R - 100% R

is this ok? or not?

can you give me some advice/ comments and can you suggest me the appropriate panning? I really dont have any idea or the right one...

thanks..

how does it sound to you? if you are happy with it, and think other people will not hate it, then it's good.

that said, i rarely pan OHs hard. otherwise it looks about good. maybe move t2 closer to center, and t3 closer to match t1.

again though it's up to your ears. if it doesnt sound weird or wildly unconventional, then it's probably pretty close, at least for just starting out.

good luck!

There are lots of guys out there that will only hard pan left, right, or center.

If it was one of those folks mixing it would look like this (if mixed from drummers perspective):

Kick - center
Snare - center
Tom1 - left
Tom2 - center
Tom3 - right
OHL- left
OHR - right
Hats - left or right depending on the drummer (lefty or righty)
Ride - left or right depending on the drummer (lefty or righty)
