Hi everyone ! I was very fortunate to find this forum while searching for drum mixing tutorials. Sorry to bother you with a vst question but hope you could offer some advice on how I can achieve this particular snare/kick sound. I am currently using the vst EZ Drummer Toontrack EZX Metal Machine. I am trying to re-create this kind of snare impact heard in the following demos (which also uses the same drum vst according to the author/composer) but cannot figure out how to get the snares and kicks to become as fat, heavy, and weighted even when I applied a great deal of compression and parallel processing. Hope you won't mind advising on how I could eq/compress the snare/kicks to achieve a similar type of weight and thickness/snap/punch in the following examples. Thank you very much for taking the time to read. Any ideas, suggestions, etc, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and best regards!
