You can definitely trick the ear into thinking that small speakers are putting out a LOT more lows because of this trick. Experiment with this sort of thing if you haven’t before. Its amazing just how much low bass it feels like the sound has even through an iPhone speaker\
Because of the property above, you can carve out space in a mix by moving what seems to be the resonant octave up an octave or so, the classic case of making room for the bass guitar by moving the kick up.
And all this is before we get into the compressor/expander on every band, including a hold control!
Drum specific EQ and dynamics processor with bands centered on the harmonics of the drum.
Problem: Often the frequencies that need to be addressed when mixing drums or harmonics related to the shells to the drum shells resonant frequency. An easy way to manipulate each of these harmonics can go a long way, you’re not just mixing but in altering the perceived base response of a song. Many times drums appear to have more bass than the phone speaker or headphone cadet ever pulled out through the illusion caused by turning up or down a harmonic that actually exists in that speaker’s band pass range.
Previous solutions: Google up a frequency response chart and a calculator and start entering in all your values and then type all of these values into a parametric equalizer plugin. No fun! Oops, you got the fundamental frequency wrong, now you have to do all of the calculations and typing in parameters again. Triple no fun!
Our Solution: with Drum EQ you first set the drums resonant frequency and all of the harmonics are calculated for you and mapped onto the other bands in addition there’s a secondary harmonic setting so that you can emulator effect of the bottom head some degree or are creating a more angry snare or a mellow snare. Also each band of DrumEQ features a set of dynamics so that you can have some control over the dynamic range of the queued signal a lot of times you’re gonna see that you’re gonna want to limit things after you boost them a little bit.
