    1a) Drum Tech and / or drummer over the age of 35

    1b) Fatso

    2) DBX 160 vu

    3) SSL compression going on 'somewhere'

    On mixdown the old 'normal drums' mixed with Compressed drums trick.

  4. My absolute favorite method is when people hire me to fatten up their drum sounds. ;)

    Start with fat drums of course. Good mics and iron help.

    'iron help' in the thing that takes the wrinkles out of pants and shirts or like a very good assistant/s? :D

    16th and 32nd note delays work pretty well too... speakers set up in a good room with the drum balance pumped through them with mics set up to catch the room sound work... there are a million of them, it's probably best for you to experiment and find a few of your own 'magic formulas' to create the magic you're looking to create.

    (OK, somedays we do have to try to do alchemy... but it's a drag).

    Neve 2254's on the Kik and Snare

    Pultecs on everything.

    SSL/Channelstrip setting on the Stereo Mix.

    Sound Replacer on the Snare (My kick always sounds deeper)

    Small Plate Reverb ( EMT 140)

    If Digital, send tracks to an old Neve and print to tape from the direct outs using generous helpings of EQ.

    No, iron as in transformers.

    So, you mean transformers as in robots in disguise? I hardly think they are made of iron. It must be some sort of metal found on a different planet, so as to allow them to transform from vehicles to robots.
