You can achieve a vast number of effects through this online hip hop mixing and mastering technique. Make routing to a kick or snare drum.
Top-end stereo processing
When mixing electronic music, you can get a perfect result by using stereo effects for high frequencies. As far as drums often play a dominating role in electronic styles, this effect gives a better filling of a mix stereo field.
Add some noise
If your snare drum lacks presence effect, white noise can be used as a synthesized extra layer. Download any synthesizer with a white noise generator and adjust sidechained gate triggered by snare. Play with attack and release settings to achieve natural sounding for drums – sharp burst at the beginning and smooth fading afterwards. The main thing is that you shouldn’t mix too loud noise to the snare drum; its work includes only adding upper harmonics and raising legibility of snare in the overall mix.
To process each instrument separately is by all means more simply, but to edit a group can be more convenient and acoustically favorable. For instance, grouping toms and their common tuning by an equalizer, a compressor and reverberation turn their sound into more consolidated. It will also save processor’s energy as well as your time.
Magic of sampling
If your snare drum falls short of high frequencies, but on the whole it sounds good, just duplicate it and process with a high-pass filter. It is subject to other instruments. Play with parameters, listen to variations “before” and “after,” read reference materials and trust your ears.
