Here's a really tight sounding punchy rock kit using my favorite BFD2 kit pieces. This is a variation of the drum sound I'm using on the album I'm currently mixing. The only difference between this and the album's drum sound is that this has the cymbal direct mics up a bit (the album has them zeroed out for a looser sound), the album sound uses UAD processing on the master drum bus instead of the BFD2 effects, and the album has a CSR reverb channel for the snare (here I opted for no verb). Other than that, this preset has been the starting point for each mix (with some variation based on the song) and has been working for everything I've thrown at it.

Give it a shot and let me know what you think.

Nice kit, Funkybot! I like the snare and toms a lot. I'd probably add more weight to the kick, but that's just a personal preference. As it is, it would fit easily into a mix, and sounds cohesive.

The kick has been going up and down in volume based on the song, and this ended up being a very conservative average. If you want to beef up the kick, just throw the kick out channel up to around -6 db for some extra bottom and move the kick in channel up for some extra oomph. Thanks for the comments.

Here's an attempt at a Dave Fridmann kind of sound. Think of things like the first song off of the Flaming Lips Zaireeka (Ok I'll Admit I Really Don't Understand), or The Soft Bulletin (Racing For The Prize), but it also sounds like the work he's done with Phantom Planet and Sleater-Kinney's The Woods. Basically, all of his big drum stuff. The biggest difference is that the room at AIR sounds considerably larger than the room Fridmann tracks in at Tarbox.

The sound is all room mics plus distortion plus lots of compression. It's definitely not a sound that will be up everyone's alley, and certainly not an all purpose sound, but may be perfect for when you need big trashy drums.

Here's yet another one. Backsliders at KVR asked for a Man Man type sound (great weird band from Philly, check em out if you like Tom Waits), so here was my quick attempt at that sound. It's very kick and room heavy.

Thanks for the kind words. I really should update that one to increase the volume of the kick out channel. It was too low in that preset. I recommend uping the volume of the kick out channel to about -6db. That should add the weight that's missing back in.

Well I modified it a small bit and put to test, don't have a good listening environment here so it may well be off.

This is a brilliant thread, some great uploads here! This uploading of presets should be more deserving of its own forum no? Then it could have threads split up into types, as this will surely go on & on. I'd love to see a thread for reproducing famous kit sounds, Zepplin, G&R, Beatles e.t.c.

this is awesome.. love the fridman sounds.. what a great idea!
have any of you guys heard the new Super Furry Animals album 'Dark Days/Light Years'? the drums sounds really punchy and raw.. i'd love to know how to go about getting that sound... apparently the album was nearly all mixed in the box by Chris Shaw (dylan, weezer etc)..

Am a newbie here - 2 days in.. Any of you more experienced guys care to make a preset for that 12/8 slow blues rock feel with the eights tapped out on the ride?

Its a classic. I just love that sound!

Love BFD2 too
