    I remember some engineer in the studio referring to a balls bus for the drums.
    Obviously, this bus is some sort of drums mix w/effects. Do they mix the entire kit to this bus or just parts? Also what effects get put on this track? I think he's just using a ton of compression...maybe to give the snare and kick more of a punch??

    what some engineers will do is compress the drum sub group and also mix a none compressed signal in with it. I don't tend to do this, I've never had a great deal of sucess with it, I tend to just compress things individually.
