Top 10 Tricks You'll Learn From the Drum Mix Toolkit (40% Off Until Tomorrow)

The Drum Mix Toolkit is 40% off until tomorrow because of my early Black Friday sale.

I wanted to use this opportunity to give the top ten most important things you’ll learn from the Drum Mix Toolkit.

If you already know all of these things, cool. You might not need the Toolkit. But if you struggle with any of these things when you’re trying to make your drums sound better in the mix, this would be a good time to grab it.

Here we go!

  1. You’ll learn to use transient designers to shape your drums. They help you add attack without adding EQ, and you’re even able to take out the room sound in a boxy recording.
  2. You’ll learn the importance of sample replacement to enhance the drum recordings you already have, giving you the human feel of the performance with the sonic perfection of the samples.
  3. You’ll learn how much saturation can do to make your kick drums sound thicker and juicier in the mix.
  4. You’ll learn how I approach multi-band compression on both the drum bus as well as the individual tracks like the kick drum. Using multi-band compression on kick drums helps you tighten up the low-end while making the snap of the beater cut through the mix.
  5. You’ll learn how to use gates to reduce bleed so you can get a cleaner drum sound without annoying frequency buildup and room resonances.
  6. You’ll learn the 4 different ways you can group your drums to simplify your entire drum mix.
  7. You’ll learn how to make your drums sound bigger with reverb that doesn’t clutter up the rest of the mix. Using gated reverbs and finely timed room modes you can get a spacious drum sound that keeps the rhythm tight while staying out of the way of the instruments.
  8. You’ll learn my step-by-step process for getting explosive drums with parallel compression. Using parallel compression might be one of the most important tricks to learn for punchier drums.
  9. You’ll learn how to EQ and compress all your drums, with specific guidelines and tips to make punchy kick drums, snappy snare drums, and thunderous toms.
  10. You’ll learn how to make the kick drum and the bass move together in the mix without clashing with each other in the low-end.
