Yeah, I agree with these, at least for the most part. He was in the control room and appeared nervous about the drum sound. I expect he could hear for himself that they were going to need a lot of help.

Haha.... went back to the session and got the original files before we screwed around with tuning the drums.

Here is what they sounded like on the first go: (no EQ or compression - just a bit of panning and leveling)

Yeah, that drum in the right speaker is a floor tom. The one on the left is the first tom - the one I momentarily thought was a snare drum with the lever off.

Honestly, I thought the original drums (without sample replacement) sounded much better. I'm sure it fits in context of the mix but the original drums sounded nice, just a bit jazzy and not hit hard enough.


On a side note, that is the most generic 'sloppy 17 year old' drumming I've ever heard



EDIT: Oh my god, just heard the original drum tuning. Jesus Christ! I feel for you Chris, I really do

Those toms sound like the weird computerised bits in Bonzo's Montreaux (skip to 1:30):

Fair point. Lots of times, a sound that you would never use on its own is the one that fits perfectly into the context of a mix. This guy was going for a Silversun Pickups kind of sound. Ironically, he said he wanted a nice tight kick.... but he didn't have one.

It wasn't a track - it was just "play something and let's check sounds and levels. Make sure to hit all the toms at some point." Nice kid.

Yeah, my first thought (after me asking him to hit the first tom and I thought it was a snare....) was "f**k me. You're going to be asking me to make this sound good, right? And you're NOT kidding?"
