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.
Here's a new song that's part of the same adolescent song cycle for me (this one's about the summer between grade 10 & 11). It's the second song where I'm working with real drum tracks. I've still a bit of vocal clean-up to do (a few pops and "k" sounds and mouth sounds etc...) Any direction otherwise on this - more of a macro focus for now as I've still some work to do with the track.
I'm mixing a project with two drummers on most of the songs, much like The Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers etc. I've been pondering my panning approach and, though I've kind of got it figured out, it would be useful to hear what others have done or think they would do with two kits before I settle on something.
Hello everyone. Got an instrumental song and can't work out how to get drums sound 'inside the mix'. I'm guessing the reason is wrong reverb settings for the drum track. Also maybe the idea of how the drums go does not fit into the concept of the song.
Hoping for your help.
First of all let me say that I am very new to all of this but have found it very interesting.
I am starting a mobile recording studio business in my area. I am getting a custom trailer built that is 8'x24'x7.5'. My original plan was to build a 8'x14' live room and record real drums, but after doing some reading it seems like it might be difficult to get a good drum sound in such a small room.
I know peeps here aren't HUGE into Adobe Audition, but I use CS6 and love it. Just wondering if any of you could throw some tips/tricks my way on what kind of mixing techniques or effects you use on snare/bass/overhead condenser for symbols, etc.
Thanks in advance!
hello everyone, this is my first post.
I have a cheap Behringer xenyx 1222 fx usb. it's a cheap mix cause I don't have cash to get propper material right now.
My drum kit is a pearl forum seriez and I use Istanbul samatya cymbals.
I have a Shure pg 52 on the bass drum, 2 samson co2 for overheads and a Shure sm58 for the snare.
I'm currently working on a music project in Garageband [yes, not the best DAW, but I'm comfortable with it, and I can't afford high-end DAWs]; while I think I'm able to mix most audio fairly well, I'm still having trouble with drum mixing. I'm using Addictive Drums for the drum input; while I'm able to "record" the MIDI tracks the way I want, I'm having trouble mixing them.
