    Hi everyone!
    Have you heard of Glenn's challenge to replace real drums with fake ones and make them sound as real as possible?
    If not, here's a link to the video explaining everything, unfortunately the contest's over, so no more entries are allowed.
    I partecipated, you can hear my entry here (any feedback would be appreciated)


    I was wondering how many of you did it as well, feel free to share your entries, let's hear what we got!
    Good luck to everybody!

    I know what you are saying but I am working with too many of fake drums then like he said in the video have a chance to work on real ones. That what I did. I am not after any price or so. It is just a fun bit :)

    I understand the struggle! I'm also stuck with fake drums, at least until I get my hands on a real studio...

    Drums are a bit too aggressive for this "song" IMHO, but sound great anyway! I find the mix to be too much bassy, and it seems like there's a lot of clipping going on.

    I transposed all drums to SSD, then bounced each track and used Trigger on the kick, snare and toms. From there I added a small amount of reverb to each track just to get them sounding more like the originals which had a bit of room ambience on the dry tracks. No outboard was used other than on the master bus which was sent to my Hairball Rev F 1176. I only have one unit so I split the stereo bounce into mono tracks and send them individually. Not ideal, but at least I know each channel is perfectly matched! For reference tracks I used Black Sabbath's, 13 album.
