In this video tutorial, Shachar Gilad of Waves introduces basic techniques for live drum sound mixing. The first step in drum mixing is achieving a good internal balance between the different elements of the drum kit, then EQing the individual drum tracks. You’ll also learn basic drum compression techniques as well as parallel drum buss compression. As a finishing touch, Shachar shows how adding reverb to the snare gives it tail and impact.
