stumped? giving me problems?
why u think its terrible or what? give me the thought process lol, my mind reading is a bit weak lately
yes its ezd2 lol.
‘metal’ ezx. with no internal processing. The vid shows that this ezx focused on them already giving you processed sounds etc. On the original mix I posted I used their processed kick and snare plus added all my own compression layers but on this mix I basically just used the metal mixer with kick and snare from the default “modern” kit
IIRC I dont use any of their pre made “kits” either. i generally use the “original mix” which gives me all of the mixer channels to work with
snare = 5x14 Ludwig chrome over aluminum dampened (from the default “modern” kit)
kick = 16x22 yamaha 9000 - plastic beater (also from the default “modern” kit)
The metal kit may have been recorded with certain processing coming in, like they all are of course. But the actual kick and snare im using are pretty plain jane
The ‘metal’ ezx mixer has a ‘comp’ channel in the mixer which is compressed and i assume its basically functioning as a parallel type of “crush bus” which i have additional compression on but I have it really low in the mix on this mix. It was way more prominent in the first mix.
the only compression on this mix was as follows:
snare = antress modern compressor http://antress.blogspot.com/
kick = FG 401
2 bus = waves vcomp and L1 limiter. This is where I gained most of my volume by cranking the output of the vcomp. The L1 was not slammed, it was set at -1 threshold, which is barely on lol and -.1 output ceiling
master = only an L1 set very mild at -.9 thresh and -.1 ceiling
Nothing about this mix was in any way slammed, it was all very very mild/ no wacky eqs either. The only slammed thing was the ‘comp’ track within ez drummer but like I said i had it down pretty low
here are some of the sounds broken down further
drums only no 2 bus compression
I rendered this and called it ‘almost bare’ but i forget what all this was lol. I think this still has the comp track still on. not sure though
and this is with all compressors off, comp channel muted, reverb muted
