In this video, I will show you a couple easy EQ tricks to get your kick drum to sound huge and massive. This will help you give weight to your kick drum regardless of genre or music style…..that might have been a redundant statement there. Super easy and super fast with great results.
This is the edited live stream from the previous week, editing out all of the glitches at the intro and un-needed material to move the mix along a bit faster. The video will be chaptered for your convenience. The audio files are available for mixing at the link below.

In this video, we go over the drum and bass processing for the Mixing Horns 2 video. We go into detail on the eq, compression, and reverb used. Taking the drums from dull to hot and spicy…..ok, maybe just hot.

In this video, I’ll go over how to get that hard-hitting punchy rock drum sound you hear from commercial rock bands. All done in a home studio without using any drum replacers and inexpensive mics. I would love to hear how you obtain punchy drums on your recording. Thanks so much for stopping by today and would love it if you’d subscribe. Bret Ferguson @ Recording Crave

By request 😉 recording and specifically mixing live drums for a recording. I show you how I mixed the drums from this youtube video I did on mixing brass instruments.
