Impactful kit …

Quickie here – In my search to get a powerful drum sound, I came across this very simple technique incase you’re in a hurry.

Parallel compression on the whole kit. I used Waves H-Comp on the drum bus. Up the attack time till you’ve got enough impact on the hits without it popping too much, then mix the wet/dry signal till you’ve got a nice sucking on the cymbals, now up the output.
I also send the kick to a separate output for extra control and definition.

Toodle Pip !
