This class is a step by step guide to mixing an acoustic drum set for beginners. The videos for this class will walk you through the thought process of an audio engineer as he edit's and mixes a drum kit. Within this class we'll explore mixing buses, phase issues, quantizing and sampling, and mixing techniques using plug-in effects. In no time you will have the skills and knowledge to start getting great sounding drum mixes

We highly encourage student/teacher interaction, so If at any point you have questions or would like to start a discussion, don't hesitate to ask the instructor. This class is recommended for beginner to intermediate engineers and/or producers using any type of DAW.

The class is divided into 3 Sections:
Section 1 explores session preparation, an essential first step to any mix. Buses and auxiliary channels are used to organize and simplify the mix. Phasing issues between drum elements - which can kill the power of a drum kit - are identified and resolved. Finally, a rough mix is built by panning and balancing levels between tracks, establishing a solid foundation for the progression of the mix.

Section 2 explores the next crucial step to a professional sounding mix: editing. The drums will be quantized by using Beat Detective in Pro Tools - manual quantizing will also be examined. The drum sound will be beefed up through the use of sampling, a popular technique used in modern mixing. Then the sound will be cleaned up by "gating" some of the drum elements using Strip Silence in Pro Tools, creating a professional, polished sound.

Section 3 gets into the actual mixing part of the process. Balance, space, and power are added to the drums through the use of compression, equalization, reverb, and parallel compression.

By the end of this course you’ll be able to

Use Aux tracks and buses to sum tracks.
Identify and correct phase issues.
Quantize drums to the grid.
Add triggered drum samples.
Gate tracks using modern non-linear editing techniques.
Use compression to shape the sound of the each part of the drum kit.
Use equalization to enhance the tone of each part of the drum kit.
Use reverb to add space and depth to the drum kit.
Use parallel compression to enhance the sound of the drum kit.

What are the requirements?

Basic understanding of Computer Recording
Basic understanding of Audio Signal Flow
Basic understanding of Equalization, Compression, Delay, and Reverb
Pro Tools is recommended but not required
What am I going to get from this course?

Over 16 lectures and 1.5 hours of content!
Over 25 years of experience and expertise from a professional recording studio that has serviced bands such as U2, Blink 182, Switchfoot, Icona Pop and many many more.
By the end of this course, you will be able to create a professional sounding mix of an acoustic drum kit.
