I've read that some other top mixers have done this. I tried it myself and although it made the original snare very focused and punchy, it was often in danger of ripping my face off... The transient punch was just too intense with every drum track stacking up in volume.

I like your plan of recording it better, or if that's not an option, using samples.

Thanks for the insight into your process.

Btw, I've admired your work going back to the early 2000's with some of the Jars of Clay stuff you've worked on and the Jill Phillips record you mixed. I was too young to even know what a mixer was at that point but the sounds of those records had a profound influence on me!

Thank you!
