Why you should should divide the Drumset into 4 separate groups, and how to treat
- [Voiceover] So you've probably noticed…in my template that I have the drum kits…separated into several difference auxes,…input and outputs and also four different bounce stems.…So remember now that bounce stems…are what happens in the final stage…before it hits the stereo main.…And it's how I separate stems from one another…after the final mix pass where everything is in.…So let's take a look at my drum kit aux inputs.…
So I have kicks, snares, toms, cymbals,…rooms, compressor, and effects.…Those, one, how many was that, seven?…One, two, three, four, five, six, seven…aux inputs are bounced down to four bounce stems.…The kicks, the snares, what I call the top kit,…and then the effects.…Notice that the drum rooms mic goes to the effects bounce.…
So why do I do that, why do I have them divided that way?…Well, the first obvious reason is…I can then selectively EQ an entire…kick drum set of channels.…So there might be, in a live kit,…two maybe sometimes three kick drum mics…and I'd say well I wanna put one EQ…across both of those microphones.…
