Sup fellas? So I have been making dnb for a long time and have learned very many useful tricks how to get my tunes sound better. I can definitely see a great leap in sound quality over year or so. But one thing seems to have improved a little or even not at all. Yes, the mighty drums which in my case are rather pathetic. I have been watching countless tutorials on Youtube, roamed around in Google etc. but I haven´t found any great piece of advice on how to mix drums, especially the snare. I am struggling really hard with this one. So I thought that maybe more experienced and competent producers from this community could help me out with great advice. My question would be: how do you make your snare sound punchy and distinguished? I mainly have issues with bringing my snare out of the bass-pad-lead madness - it just seems to have died in the background. Techniques that I am using when mixing snare: some layering, standard compression(the funny thing is that I don´t really know what compression does), boosting at 200-300Hz(around +8dB), a little boosting at 800-2000Hz(2-5dB) and also at 3000-6000Hz(2-3dB). I also kinda like to add Blood Overdrive to it(using FL Studio 10). I should be doing something with Free Filter too, but I don´t know what. Could you help me get better and possibly brush up your knowledge? A tutorial(for FL Studio) on relevant topic would be splendid. I am also in an active search of some great sounding dnb drums sample packs, do you know of any? And yes, I make liquid dnb. Forgot to mention it. Many thanks in advance!
