Recording your own drum kit and processing
Anybody else here recording your own drum kit? Being a drummer, and having space in my house for one of my kits to be set up and miced at all times, I have the luxury of recording my own grooves, or chopping them up and using my own individual samples.
My question is, what do you guys use to treat your acoustic drum kit samples / loops? I love that gritty sound, w/ a raspy snare. Usually I'm going for the bitcrusher in Logic, and also using a filter effect. Compression is an obvious choice to make the overall kit slam in the mix, especially parallel compression to retain some of the dynamics/sound of the unprocessed tracks. I know your choice depends on the sound you're after. Sometimes I'll layer samples, like use an electric kik blended with my kik from my acoustic drums. What do y'all like to do w/ your acoustic loops / samples?
