Mixing bass through headphones is hard, imo. I watched a youtube video recently that said it should generally sit at the level of the drum kick providing a kind of 'tail' from the initial kick drum 'thud'.
I'm not sure if I've managed to..?
I've been working on a new instrumental. Well, it's actually a re-work of a track I first attempted 20-odd years ago. Anyhow, what does everyone think? Have I nailed it?.. I'm trying to get the drums to sound 'decent'.. Might have over embellished in a few places..
At usual, I'm mixing on my trusty DT-990 pro headphones.
It's my first post on the forum so - Hello!
I'm starting this thread to show my journey with learning how to record and mix drums in my home studio (and some bit of music productions too), so any advice and tips are more than welcome!
Here is my latest recording:
Some grooves inspired by my almost half-year stay in Central African Republic.
I've been challenged in the last 19 months to create music VERY fast for video projects. I created a video showing the process I've been using to get better drums sounds using stock logic drum tones. I prefer recording drums with a real drummer however this has been a fantastic challenge in its own right.
I'm mixing a guitar-based track and struggling to get the drums to sit well.. I'm very much a newcomer to this stuff so any thoughts or feedback on how I could improve things would be greatly appreciated! (Find mp3 attached).
I found this out via a promo that BFD is under new ownership. Its a weird way to find out considering i own about 3/4 or more of the entire BFD collection. I would think they'd send an email to all registered customers.
Morning from sunny West Yorkshire UK,
I am not a drummer, I do play drums though. I picked it up when I was 41. I practiced many hours a day initially on a Roland TD10 kit then this wonderful Gretsch Renown Maple kit with A Zildjian Pro cymbals. Sadly the Gretsch were sacrificed in the many moves my family and I have made.
