Dynamics Lesson 1 (drums)

Posted: March 2, 2015 in Advanced Production Techniques

Today in Advanced Production Techniques we looked at parallel compression on drum kits. Parallel compression is a technique used to beef out or make more noticeable a selected sound in the main mix. Compression can be used to inflate or deflate a sound according to your desired result and when parallel compressing, you basically have your raw ‘dry’ drum mix mixed together with the same duplicate signal but heavily compressed. Afterwards we will have the strength and punch of compression but also the warmth and acoustics of the original recording. We discussed the methods upstairs in the Mac suite before going into the studio and trying them out on the SSL desk. For this session i decided to use my laptop and Cubase software.. Unknown
