Rough to Mixed - BFD2's powerful effects

Postby AshleySmith08 » Sat Apr 24, 2010 7:52 pm

Hey all,

I have been on a journey today and noted a lot of info regarding the materials and properties used in drum construction. It is important to know such information (IMHO) when choosing and matching kit pieces (creating a drum kit), and it helps having a knowledge and an understanding of, for example, the tonal characteristics of various woods and shell types for mixing drums.

Here's a demo highlighting what you can achieve with BFD2's powerful effects and an application of such knowledge.

The first part is without any effects (only the channel faders have been adjusted for balance), then the second part (after the pause to let your ears reset) has the same channel fader levels but with the FX kicked in.

Hope you enjoy it! Please feel free to comment.

I used the Pearl MasterWorks kit.

Ash :D

Hello Ashley

Nice drums sound. :D
I like it more than the Nickelback post ( too much compression on the snare IMHO). :( But I loved the Kings of Leon wav
Also it seems that you have mastered the use of reverbs like in the EBJ post (do you use reverb as insert or on a bus?) I like that.


would you share this preset and the Nickelback one please? :wink:

thanks

vik

Hi Vik,

I'm in the process of recording vid's atm, but I'll flag this message and get round to posting the presets asap ;)

I have an amazing Breverb Snare Plate preset I created that suits almost everything (though can't reveal that one just yet). I run it on an aux and feed it via a send post fx. I set it post fx so I can solo safe the aux channel, solo and mute the send channel and just hear the reverb on its own to adjust it without the direct sound... I find that a good method when using reverbs.

Cheers for the compliments, much appreciated :)
