thicker toms and snare

hey guys, ive been messing with samples and things like thatt. and i have a pretty decent sound, i just want them thick, not a lower pitch, but thicker. i guess for the snare the easiest way would be blending? but what about toms?

Re: thicker toms and snare

I find using a subtle clipper on my toms makes them a little more distorted and gives them a thicker sound.

you need to make something else thinner to give them space to be thick.

Boosting around 200-250hz can help here (I like a low shelf at 200hz personally) but it really depends on the frequency content of the drum you're eq'ing.

Mixing in a fatter sounding sample works too.

Multiband compression on the low end (60-400Hz) on your drum buss or just toms. Slow attack, and push them at a clipper. Also add a ton of harmonic distortion and a high shelf on the top end to give it some more click.
