    listen to the drum rolls before the intro breakdown

    listen to how their so fast clicking and up in your face

    my toms sound are sounding kind of soft compared to that
    is it compression that the guy is doing? or is it clipping?

    and if someone recommends gclip, what good alternative is there for mac for pro tools 8?

    thanks for your time.

    Im sick of these vocalists, in fact this genre does my nut in. Songs seem to have no meaning and that song is just a bunch of shit riffs plastered into one 4 minute piece of bleh.

    Am I the only one who watched the whole vid to spot hot scene girls?


    Nothing interesting. Anyways, I can't imagine clipping sound good on toms, definitely some compression. Good heads is a good start to a good tom sound.

    i did try toms at 100% but it resonates too much
    so, i used a strong compression setting
    and infront of that
    i gated the affected toms a little bit
    and i automated the gate plug so it wont effect single tom hits

    I would love to know the same thing dude. I can't get my toms to sound like this either with 100% replacement, compressing the shit out of them makes them louder but causes all sorts of problems with resonating frequencies.

    No one here helped him get his answer in any way.

    People were too busy telling him how much that band sucks.
    If I started a thread, and got that kind of unhelpful responses, I would feel in no way obligated to share my findings.

    To the OP:

    I've come damn near close to this tom sound.

    Basically what I did was:

    Slate Fat Tom samples (100%)

    ReaComp compressor settings:

    Threshold - (-15)
    Attack - (14ms)
    Release - (75ms) (This reduces some of the resonance issues, I feel.)
    Ratio: (4:1)

    Waves TransX Multi
    ReaEQ - Boost at 400Hz, Cut some of the mids, Boost around 3K

    Hopes this helps!

    OH, and crank the toms up.

    Edit: And while the tom drum tone may not match, the attack and "in your face" is definitely there.

    dude
    are you kidding me?

    1. whenever i share my information with people
    other people say im wrong, or diss it, neglect it

    why would i want to share the answer with people who arent even interested in the topic, they just care about talking shit about a band, saying their REALLY shit, when in reality

    their not
    they obviously did something right
    cause they progressed since the last time i saw their myspace
    if someone doesnt like a band
    Fine
    i hate lotza bands

    but doesnt mean they suck

    and you got the balls to say me not sharing the info makes this a waste of a thread
    but you read the previous users comments and you dont call that a waste?

    man...lol
    your funny lol

    first man, you need some nice tom samples
    and the kind of compression i think your doing is incorrect for the application of toms.

    your gunna want a decently hard knee
    and what kinda compressor are you using?
    some compressors give different characteristics.
    people talk shit abuot the BF76, that comes with pro tools
    but it sounds fuckin great.
    ill post my drum tracks tomorow night
    and hopefully people will not talk shit about the tones hahahah
    just keep toying with it man
    make sure theres high attack
    a bit of a low threshold

    A-fucking-Men brother
    thanks so much for the tips man
    your settings were pretty close to mine :p

    ill post up the drum track tomorrow night
    let me know what you think when their up :p
