What's on your drum buss in 2019

Hi,

I have been away from the software game for a while but back to making electronic music and gone more ITB than ever before.

Given we are fast approaching the singularity, what is on your drum buss in 2019 and why?

No, Sorry, I often set up a channel for parallel compression of my drums and percussion for enhanced presence and 'glue'.

I thought this was common practice in electronic dance music but I have been using an old sonalksis plugin for a decade now and wondered where people allegiance lay with regards to a drum buss set up

I usually use parallel compression and some drive. I use an analog mixer tho, as i am trying to keep my home singularity free for as long as I can.

The why is just to add a lil chutzpah and oomph etc...

API 2500 though sometimes the KT-1176 and GAP LA3A , at the moment I EQ everything else besides drums ... Moog DFAM, Jomox 999, more fun lately with custom patches on the ARP 2600 (TTSH) and MS20M.

most of my drum tracks make there way through an old soundcraft mixer at some point, might crank its rather obtrusive eqs/ patch in a vactrol compressor.

once all grouped in ableton though I tend to set up a return to sub mix all the individual drum tracks thorugh and blend to taste.

iv been using sonalksis sv315 for ages now and wondered what people are preferring nowadays - sv315 does a good job, Im just curious.

I don't often use a drum bus. I usually just process drums individually and leave them routed to the master.

Everything is processed individually too, I don't think a drum buss should be treated as a magic bullet by any means.

Sometimes I am blending the tinyest bit it for glue and 'ooomph'..less is more..most of the time..

I do sometimes wonder whether what I think I am gaining may be marred by introducing phase issues, but todays DAWS should be able to run parallel compression busses and get it all sample accurate ??
