i use extern software to make drum tracks from samples. So it is kind similar situation for most of you "problems" 🙂
Lets try to find some answers:
- "real" sounding track - it is up to you AND used samples. You have to vary the velocity of most hits (best in a way like real drummers do), specially in fills and breaks. AND you better use layered samples.
- Samples are already processed and ready to mix - mostly. After all you can do anything with the track.
- Room mics and/or Overheads are available (mostly) as tracks or samples too, so there is no need to simulate them.
Anyway, if you have close mics samples only for example, you can try to add ambience or reverb. I can name some good plugins in you want.
Your turn steve 🙂
