Expansion Before Compression on Snare Drum [1-Minute Mix Tip]

Matt Weiss here with a one minute mix tip.

Let’s say we have a snare drum and we want
to fatten it up with some compression.

Sounds all well and good, but all of that
reverb that’s inside the sample has suddenly

just come up, and so while we do get a fatter
tone, unfortunately, we’re also getting a

lot more room tone, which will seem to sink
the snare back in the stereo field.

So let’s say we want to get that extra fat
sound, but we don’t want that room tone coming

up.

Well, we can place an expander in front of
our compressor in our insert chain, and we

can kill that last little bit of release,
so we end up with a fatter sounding snare,

but a dry sounding snare.

Ready?

Before and after.

This is a great technique if we’re doing some
sound design for our production, if we’re

getting into a Hip Hop or an EDM type of record.
