    No guitars, bass, vocals? It's a lot more fun mixing drums when you have some reference.

    Nothing else tracked just yet. I understand that having the rest of a mix is important, and I can try to track some guitars/bass tomorrow when I have time.

    I was mainly interested to see how differently other people would process just drums.

    I have a very hard time shaping or changing raw drums.

    Sorry i gotta blend the kick, it had a annoying sound for me at least, and the drummer also needs some more practice doesnt he?:devil:...anyway anything further i wouldnt bother without the whole mix.

    Knowing what kind of music it will be could only help more. You can also let some more sub into the kicks, than i did but i cant really tell it on these monitors i got here.

    Do you mind to upload the whole song raw tracks once you track everything? Please :)

    Here's my take, no samples and it'll probably sound like crap in the intended mix:

    I think you need to work on the snare micing a bit, there's a lot of bleed in them which makes it hard getting any presence and punch out of them. The drummer might need to hit harder as well.

    Awesome I'll check a few of these out once I get on a computer.

    I always thought our drummer was fairly consistent but lately realizing that's not the case so much.

    Snare has a weird "piiiiing" to it that I hate. The room we are tracking in is bad.

    This was how I felt about my whole band including myself when I started doing our recordings :lol: but it has helped us find and fix weak points that we never would have otherwise.

    Keep em coming guys!

    I'm interested to see how someone would edit these as well since the kicks are a bit off especially on the fast double kick bit.

    Yesterday it took us like 3 hours to track a 2:03 song on drums. =/

    I swear he goes full retard once in a while. "Dude, the scratch guitars HAVE to be wrong....this is NOT how we play it", etc......Bro I wrote the song and have been playing it for like 6 years......

    Anyway, the reason behind this is I may look into someone from this forum to work some magic on drums for me. I always have a really hard time getting raw drums to sound decent without blending kick and snare.

    thing is... sounds thin as hell.... is a billon years away for a similar midi drum triggering slate or sd2 samples.

    may i ask you for some samples of the same kit? at least two kicks, and four snares hits.

    It is a huge diference to compress a sample than a track... the comp brings up all the shiti bleed....

    In a good or bad way?

    Like I said it was very quick recording of guitars but I just wanted to get something for you guys.

    Are the DI's ok, quality wise? (Minus the sloppy playing)

    Can you give info on what you did for drums and ampsims as well as bass processing?
