Thomas gives you several strategies — dealing with both individual sounds as well as the entire E-drum kit — that will help transform your drum sounds from flat to phat! These videos are for those new to the subject of mixing electronic drums.
Thomas welcomes you and begins by introducing the idea of enhancing samples, demonstrating how the layering and editing of samples can create a more exciting sound even before you start your mix. Next, discover how to blend several samples together using EQ and processing to create a more focused sound on your kick, snare, and clap sounds, and learn a handy trick using bit reduction to reduce unwanted detail and resonance.
Then explore a few different ways to tame harsh-sounding hi-hats and shakers so they fit more neatly into the track. Also discover how saturation can be employed to create a fuller sound and how parallel auto-panning can add stereo width and additional rhythmic interest!
Throughout the rest of the course, you’ll explore several other tips and strategies, including adaptive EQ, side-chaining techniques, transient shaping, specific ideas for processing 808s, bus processing with Soothe2 and distortion, parallel compression/EQ, using the R-bass plugin to add low end, and more!
