Academy Dashboard Forum Production Mixing Toms Down Trick Reply To: Toms Down Trick

    Hi Tony, yes, Patrick explained it pretty perfectly! I stole the trick from Mark Endert, he brings it down around -18db and when compression and EQ is applied the bleed is still evident but it's balanced well with the tom hits. Also the trick I do at the end of songs where I will apply eq to the tail of a sustaining guitar to bring down the high frequency buzz etc can be applied to the end of toms if the decay is going into a cymbal hit etc. I hope that all makes sense? Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren
