    I've never considered trying to mix drums, so this is first time, was really educational - would love to hear the Big Dogs on this site do a version, so we can learn

    Maybe this should be a competition of some type, would love to hear a shoot out - Drum tone comp.

    Sounds like intentional dynamics to me, you know, the kinda thing musicians were supposed to use before the age of 100% wet sample replacement of single samples?

    There are some nasty frequency's you guys are not taking out (top) and some low chuff (low mids) that needs to come out. Also parallel compress the group. Otherwise once you start putting gtr's on those drums they will not cut through at all

    Most common thing I hear above is over eq'ing and over compressing. Don't go crazy with the tools as otherwise it sounds forced. I use 1db GR per channel (apart from drum mst bus and parrell comp of course).

    On your post you said you couldn't be bothered doing the toms....

    IMHO, the op said PUNK drums for MIXING practice,
    not METAL drums for SAMPLE REPLACEMENT practice.

    Lets hear your version with no samples to do a fair comparison.

    No probs, did this one just for you :lol:

    No sample replacement at all. You got to make the snare crack in an ambient way and keep the glue of the kit.

    I will be the first to admit, if I received these drum tracks for mix I would 100% be adding samples (not replacing, especially that kick).

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1618313/Druuuummmmzzzz%20No%20Samples.mp3

    Also go check out C_F_H 13 raw drums in the thread about editing drums. Those are some reallly nice acoustic drums.

    They don't need much augmentation at all (samples)

    Hey man,

    These things are all personal preference, but for me your clip needs more glue (master bus compression) and more ambiance. Send you drum reverbs (I use two reverbs for drums) outputs to the drum bus input also, so they get nice and compressed (reverb tails).
