An 80s inspired kit brought in to the modern light. The hope was to create something in the middle of what most think of as a natural kit and an electronic kit. The snare is the star of the show here with a somewhat dry, short tail, with very loose snare wires that all stop at once to create that modern take on the "vintage" gated snare sounds. The toms are tuned slightly higher than normal and have that slap and punch to poke out of any mix with ease.
This is the "Lite" version. This is basically each drum how I had it mixed. I could replace the drums in the song with these samples set to '0' and would have no change.
Most close mics were Vintage Neve 1073, or 1084s. The toms were Vintech 573s All sounds were processed through my mix bus chain and outboard compression.
