Transient shapers definitely help tighten the overall break . A bit too much and the beak becomes too tonaly thin tho. So multiband compression could be a good idea to re-gain some weight. ThanksHave a look into "transient shapers" and maybe a bit of "multiband compression"
Nice. Yeah I'll have a go at EQing these areas and pitching up. Definitely right about the kick, sounds like he's removed the splashy hat that sits above it. Kick was an area of the break I liked most. Has an 'air'y layer over the top, possibly achieved through sending it to a really small reverb?The break has certainly been pitched up. The 2 channels of the original break have very different qualities so I'm pretty sure this based on the channel that isn't as distorted to start with. I don't hear too much being done to the mids probably a broad subtractive EQ in there since the highs shine so much. The kicks in the Amen are predominantly two frequencies and I think the higher of the two was notched out. Probably a couple key subtractive EQ cuts in the mid-highs and high-highs too. The break was heavily compressed at the end of the processing chain (I can hear distortion on some of the snares). Those are my guesses at least. Some of the real Amen experts would probably know better.
It was the Think break. These guys did a really good job with cleaning up those old breaks.I have it also as well as their remastered worm break and one I other I can't remember the name of
i use this technique on almost all my drums...@fanu did a good tutorial explaining how to use multi-band gating a year ago [ish]. he posted a link in this forum to it. Was a great tutorial, i apply that knowledge almost every time i use a break in a tune now to get things tightened up. Link To Video
EDIT: also link to thread if you wanna take a peek at it
Would also love to have a link to those breaks, if anyone's willing to shareJust signed back in after a couple weeks. Yeah cool, I'll check these out thanks. Does anyone have the link for those Audio Animals breaks? I'll check out that tutorial also. Think I stumbled across a different tut by that guy on YouTube the other day
