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

    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.

    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.
