Comp keying Gate ducking example

as a working example from the "Mixing rap vocals" thread https://www.gearslutz.com/board/showt...785#post230785



On this track I threw a gate on the hi hat part and ducked it with an aux send from several channels including the vocals, bass, and mainly kick and snare. It let's it peak out but stays out of the way when everything else is pumping. The guitar and strings had a compressor on them keyed from the lead rap and chorus parts compressing about 2db off of them. It's kinda subtle, but it allows my kick to have that verb on it, which was something I didn't want to get lost in the schuffle too.

Damn good song! Old school sounding, I'm not a hip hopper but this reminds me of the good old days. Like the sound and dirt!

Good work.

I believe that's a Will.I.Am track featuring KRS, no?

Is that the album version or a different mix?

You do some very nice work my friend, love your mixes.

peace,
Ants

Thanks for the kind words. It's off the Will.i.Am "Must B 21" record. I loved working on those records because I could do a lot of stuff that I couldn't get away with on a big major label project. I get more emails asking questions about those that most of my more popularized work on the radio.
