Tutorial - How To Get Your Drums to Sound 10x Better Using Parallel Distortion

One of the most effective and fun ways to get better drums is also one of the most overlooked. I'm referring to parallel distortion.

This technique will definitely make your drums hit harder and pop through the mix better. This is an aggressive approach that involves mixing together an extremely processed signal with the original dry signal to achieve some pretty amazing results.

In this tutorial video engineer Eric Michael will provide you with a detailed explanation and a step-by-step guide on how to get your drums sounding 10x better instantly!

    I love the video, It was informative.I play talkbox a lot and I was wondering how would you mix or record talkbox, not a vocoder but Talkbox, Roger Troutman, and Teddy Riley style. I want to hear the differences in different engineer’s approach. See what they come up with.

    I bought a kit and I couldn’t download it was the loops packs…! Charged me 30 something and I never received, and I’ve already contacted someone and still no response…? Is that how you all conduct business!
