The foundation of the mix
A massive, slamming kick drum is the backbone of any rock mix– and it doesn’t get much more slamming than the one in “Bulletproof” by Godsmack. And best of all? We were there while Erik Ron mixed in his Nail The Mix session, and here’s your chance to see what happened…
Erik covers levels, EQ with the stock Pro Tools EQ plugin, using the McDSP compressor, reverb, blending in samples, and working in the rooms– yes, there’s much more to the drum sound than this (which you can see in the full session), but it all starts here.
