Hey Ott!

I was wondering if you could give us a brief outline of your drum processing, ehm, process. I saw on here that you like to layer bits and pieces, but I'm more curious about how you're compressing the individual bits, the layered bits, as well as the drum bus as a whole. Where does parallel compression fit into your drum processing, if at all?

Thank you very much!

I don't really have a 'process' as such. I just add, remove and process things as I go, to build up the picture that I'm looking for.

I will sometimes use parallel compression if I'm looking for a little more density but most of my recordings use none at all. It's just one of many techniques I use but the overall quest is just for something which moves me, physically and emotionally.
