I'm currently mixing an EP for a band who have specified they want the drums "like Led Zepplin".... Any tips?
Invent a time machine, go back to 24th September, 1980, and persuade John Bonham to have a mug of hot milk and an early night.
99% of 'drums like Led Zeppelin' is in the playing but if you're fortunate enough to be mixing a band with a drummer that good, and assuming the recording does him justice, try compressing the overheads and any room mics after rolling them off gently [12db/8ve] above about 10khz.
Squash them until they sound like they're trying to get out of a box and then mix that in with the individual dry sounds.
Have you had to work any other (non-music) job since you've started releasing music? Or has music been your sole source of income all these years?Ott responded on 02/23/2012 Next question
Hello! I've found several mentions of you being interviewed in Sound-On)Sound, but can't fund the interview anywhere! Do you have a link to it, please? I bet it's an interesting read.Ott responded on 02/24/2012
