How much automation does everyone do on dynamic drum performances? What channels do you automate the most (kick, snare)? Or do you pretty much rely on varying types of compression to keep your drums cutting through a wall of guitars? Ss it automating guitars around the drums? I've been kind of sitting at a wall for a while where I feel like my mix is pretty great, I can hear everything clearly then go to master one of my tracks. The drums get dominated to say the least. I know its the limiting of the track but there is a flaw in what I am doing at some point. Light limiting settings, the track is too quiet. More aggressive setting and bye bye snare. I'm assuming that the mix is the root of the problem and the mastering just exacerbates it to shit. Anyone have ANY ideas let me and everyone else who struggles with a maintaining a congealed mix at every point of the production know. Thanks!!!
