Feedback on drumsound.

I've been working towards a usable drumsound (it's samples) before I start recording my guitars, so I have something to build on.
It's not in a mix, it's before I start adding everything else (Guitars, bass, etc) and begin mixing a song, but you can tell me if it sucks anyway.


It's basically it, I can and will switch out at least the snare (depending on song/genre).
I sort of imagine using the two different sounds for two different "albums"

Thanks for listening!

At least tell me you hate it, so I know you felt something!


I can understand if you feel that it has to be in context, but this is meant as "base" (even though I used compression) for the rest of the instruments.
Like, I've now mic'ed up the kit and let's record the rest (and yes it's samples, unhumanized midi, and one velocity, but it's about the sound!).

These drums sound phenomenal! Very nice work.. love how tight and pressurized they sound while still having dynamics.. great transients, great color/tone.

What did you use for processing if I may ask?

DR3 is EZDrummer 2.
SD3 is Steven Slate Drums 3.5 EX (With all the expansions).

It's made around SSD. Then I got EZDrummer 2 recently so I basically put it through the exact same process since it doesn't have seperate channels for cymbals.
But with SSD:

Built my own kit in Kontakt, but I added some homemade samples to individual tracks.
Bd - Modern 1176ME (from Antress, it's free! I'm just going to call it M1176)
Sn - M1176 and GClip (Also free)
HiHat - TLS Saturated Driver and TLS Maximizer (Free)
Toms - M1176 on each tom-channel
Crash, Ride, Splash+China - Like HiHat on each channel

Then paralell compress all the tracks with another instance of M1176.
Then I paralell compress the individual channel of Sn and Bd with M1176.
Theeeen I send all the toms to be paralell compressed with a reverb on that channel.

Wow, very cool... I will definitely have to check out that M1176.. makes those drums really pop. Also have heard great things about EZDrummer and Steven Slate drums.

Looking forward to hearing your full track when it's complete..

Cheers!
