As producers and mixing engineers we face daily challenges to make things sound more energetic, more full of life. For every artist, this could mean completely the opposite. Our role is to grasp an artist's vision and make it real through all kinds of sound-shaping methods. We are the Tone Hunters!
Drums can take a lot of processing. It’s because the drums get a lot of attention to the music and for some genres are really crucial. So it´s very important to get the drums sound just right. Drums can fight against busy arrangements with several layers of instruments. Or the recordings are sounding too sterile, thin or harsh. So you need the tone that can cut through. The drum tone has to be punchy and fat sounding, but it also needs to have a lot of clarity and tightness at the same time. But it’s not all! Even if the drums are heavily processed, sometimes they still also have to be very natural sounding at some point.
And that's why you need ToneSpot
LET'S TALK ENGINEERING FOR A WHILE, SHALL WE?
"When a professional audio engineer is building that awesome tone in the studio, he is often running it through some heavy lifting. Blending several drum samples with massive filtering, heavy compression, equalization, saturation or even some multiband processing and maybe some other crazy stuff. And it is no secret that the top engineers often run the signal through their chains twice or three times in series until both the engineer and the artist are 100% satisfied with the result. So there is a lot of stuff to do when building a perfect drum tone.
There are very few products tailored for the drums post-processing, but most of today’s engineers use a very similar workflow.
STANDARD DRUMS PROCESSING RIGS
Drum mixes can get complicated pretty quickly. Especially in today’s musical environment when everything is supposed to sound big, full and present.
There is a more effective solution. With the ToneSpot technology, you can minimize the number of plug-ins you use, while maintaining the highest sound quality possible.
MEET THE TONESPOT DRUM PRO
ToneSpot Drum Pro consists of eleven powerful modules plus the input and output sections. They represent the drum mix workflow and the signal is fed through them in series from left to right. Each module can be turned ON and OFF separately.
Drum Type - Specifies which part of the drum kit you mix and reprograms many of the following sections.
Character - Determines the basic flavor of the sound.
SBG - Our proprietary Sub Bass Generator. You can further set the cut-off frequency and the sub bass intensity.
Saturation - An advanced model of a real valve saturation circuit that has a nice higher harmonics punch.
Gate - Includes a cut-off frequency and a mix knob, so you can use it in parallel.
Shaping - Shape your tone with the 8-band musically labeled EQ.
Punch - Punch is quite a strong compressor with slower attack time and a medium compression ratio.
Surgery - An extreme surgical peak EQ with 2 identical filters and up to -50 db attenuation.
Smash - A peak-eating leveling compressor with faster attack time and a gentle compression ratio.
Effects - Three of the most used drum specific reverb types - Room, Plate and Hall.
Finalizer - This is the mastering section of your chain. Sometimes the drum kit needs a bit more fatness or smoothness.
AGC - An automatic gain control included in both input and output sections. It sets the signal level to the plug-in’s 0 dBVU.
