How to compress your drums on the hook

Do you have problem mixing your drums to cut in the mix when having a dense instrumentation?


Then this tutorial is for you.


Watch it again and again!

This really works!


Key points to have in mind:

1.Usually apply less plugins in the individual tracks

2.Bus compression

3.Two compressors: one gentle and one hard (like a live and a squashed kit)

4.Subtle EQ after the hard compressor (boost lows and highs)

5.Fast attack and medium release.


Hope that really helps your creative time of mixing.

Until the next video tutorial, keep it strong.

Peace!
