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.
P.S. If it is annoying for me to post videos in the forum I have no problem removing them:) These are the things in music that are exciting for me so I thought I would share it.
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 hope you are all well in those hard times.

I had a few requests for more Magix tuto so here's one about quantizing drums :
Le me know what you think ! ;
I would like some feedback. I just finished an iso room in my studio to track in. I’m a drummer and I will never have the square foot or height to track ambient drums. I’m ok with that and I’m fine with adding room post tracking. I guess the biggest challenge I face is getting the drums sound big enough for hard rock/metal projects. Here’s a sample of arecent drum sample I tracked in the new room. I added the room sI'm post tracking.
Here's an early mix of a new song. (I was going to be re-cutting vocals today but woke up stuffy nosed). This song features real drums in the mix tracked Glyn Johns style. After I recorded my scratch tracks I sent them out to a drummer to lay down the drum parts, then on their return I re-tracked the song locking into his drums.
Mix-wise, what I imagined as I created this was the kind of mix you'd hear if a band had setup in a studio for a life performance. That's what was in my head as I mixed this - a very visual mix.
this is pretty cool, I wish the clips were longer but pretty remarkable difference among rooms. Also insteresting to me was they used and RME/ISA 828 combination. This is similar to @pcrecord marcos setup I believe. Man does that big room sound and look spectacular imho!
Just wanted to share with you an article my buddy wrote which I've found very, very useful! He's a whiz at all things Pro Tools, and this is his guide to Drum Editing:

Do you guys have any tips or special techniques to share?

I found this tutorial showing how to replace drums in SO without third party plugins...
-It uses SO2 but the same applies to SO3
