      Hi folks,

      The recent PLAP episode on Livin' on a Prayer featured a bit with the isolated drum track - which made me go off unmix the song to try to listen to the drums in more detail.

      I can hear what sounds (to my ears) like a clearly gated snare, but can anyone shed light on how a production like this would have approached the overall drum kit please?

      Would the approach tend to be applying a gated reverb to the snare but then just using room ambience of the rest of the kit? Or a mix of reverbs for the snare, overheads, toms, kick etc, and then trying to make sure they're matched up (which i'm guessing could get messy and muddy very quickly?

      Cheers for any thougts!
