“With programmed drums, can you use the same EQ principles that you’ve gone over or has this already been done in the programming stage?”

As you probably know a couple of weeks ago I talked about the fact that I’m going to be releasing my own drum samples in a way that you can really get into velocities and all that kind of stuff. I did record them the way that I like to hear them.

However, like Al Schmitt, I don’t EQ a lot on the way in. I do it mainly on the mix- there will be a little bit of EQ applied to the drums to give them the sound that I want.

➡️Questions Covered in this weeks FAQ Friday:
• What monitors control are you using to switch between the three sets of speakers? (0:45)
• How do you set up your split console for mixing? Do you have several analog mix templates that you return to depending on the artist material you’re working with? (1:32)
• With program drums, can you use the same EQ principles that you’ve gone over or has this already been done in the programming stage? (5:59)
• I also EQ before reverb, is there ever a reason to EQ afterwards? (8:45)
• What books are standing on the back of the mixer and why do you keep them there? (10:00)
• When you mention “Glue” on parts like drum kit, how can we define that without being subjective? Is it standard distortion similar to EQ or compression? Or all of the above? What creates that effect in your experience? (14:41)
