What's up, it's my first post here. Wanting to know if anyone has a trick up their sleeve...
Here's what's going on, I'm mixing an album that I'm producing and played drums on. Some of the stuff has a "311"ish vibe to it, I play a lot of ghost notes in there that I need to come out a bit more. I notice on a lot of 311 tracks you can hear the ghost notes very crisply - that's what I'm after.
Everytime I record the drums, I always get this nasty ring coming out of the snare, and whenever I mix, it's always difficult to get the right EQ settings to remove this "ring." If someone could please help me with this issue, I'd greatly appreciate it!
PS. I used two SM57's on the snare and they're placed on the top and bottom.
Im in the process of mastering some drum tracks and have one quick question:
while mixing the snare and bass drum,is it advisable to have the bass drum set at a lower db level,and let the bass guitar bring the lower freq,s into the mix? :?
How many of you send the snare track to a stereo reverb, send the reverb to a different bus and mix it in with the dry snare track and how many of you send a reverb to a mono aux and just add as much (or as little) reverb directly the dry snare itself? What seems to work better? Or is it, like most things, a case by case deal? Just curious...Thanks.
