Soothe your overheads
In this clip from Nail The Mix, Russ Russell mixes the drums for “The Chasm” by At The Gates, focusing on the overheads. As he talks about, it’s all about making smart, strategic moves with EQ rather than simply high passing them and potentially losing much of the drums’ sonic character.
He uses FabFilter Pro Q 3, Soothe, the UAD Pultec EQ and Metric Halo Channel Strip in Pro Tools, but the same approach should work with any plugins or DAW.
