Forums Quick Links. Members Quick Links. NI Community Forum. Messages: I usually let others handle mixing duties but I want to change that. I keep everything stereo usually.
If I do the feel the need to make something mono, usually it's really simple basslines and or kick drums. TarekithOct 1, Some bass presets in massive or any synth for example will sit better mono vs stereo. Messages: 1, I would include in this category sounds like snippetshits, shouts short fx that dont need much stereo movement.
Other sounds that have a 'wider' sound source, or you can't pin point exactly where the sound is comingand you might want to record with 2 or more microphones to preserve the stereo image, those are kept in stereo tracks: piano treble and bass handssynth pads, brass ensembles, string ensemblesany type of ensemble, backing vocal, drum overheads, ambiance etc I broadly follow these guidelines, but it really depends on what I'm trying to do.
If I have a song that is very barelike tracks, I can get away with having everything stereo, except for the lead wether its a person or an instruments so its dead centered. On the other hand, when you have a very busy mix that has parts where there are many things playing at the same time, I'll refer to the guidelines above more strongly.
It really depends on the space you feel to need.
Understanding Stereo and Mono
But most importantly don't get too wrapped on itas long as it sounds good to you and translates well, no one really cares. Like x 1. Messages: 27, Would it be safe to say to MONO anything under or around hz?
Matthew CheekOct 1, I would say as others have already said there are no rules, if it sounds good in Stereo keep it that way. Always drum and bass in mono. You must log in or sign up to reply here.

Tags : bpm Rap Loops Drum Loops JamieVega 4th Feb The sounds were recorded from various analog and digital sources and processed with various onboard effects and external gear.
Some of the included drum hits were also passed through an old tape delay unit, resulting in a warm organic sound. The library contains 99 individual drum samples in bit WAV format.
The samples have been carefully edited, trimmed and normalized to The included samples are provided free of charge. You can use them for free in your music, as well as audio and video projects. The drum samples included in the 99 Drum Samples pack may not be re-distributed. You are not allowed to use these drum samples as the source material for another sound library or virtual instrument. First off, I am an amateur. I have been making music with a pirated copy of Ableton Live, a measly M-Audio Profireand cheap midi controllers for a couple of years in my free time.
So take what I say with a grain of salt. These too processed for my taste. I am not saying every drum pack should be completely raw, because Vengeance has some very cool processed sounds for example, but this collection is just a bit much.
Some of the more gimmicky sounds are cute though, I guess. Well, we all have different tastes! Thank you for these samples. I have every library conceivable and always come back to these. Super solid — love your work. Bro…are you kidding me lol.
You literally talk yourself down and then give negative feedback on a FREE sound pack. Lol people like you should just say nothing.

And for good reason. With so many elements to the kit, it is consistently the hardest instrument to capture with punch, power, and realism. But did you know that recording a mono drum overhead will help you get better sounding drums, faster? The biggest problem with stereo miking drum overheads is dealing phase issues.
More specifically when your sound source is hitting two microphones at slightly different times you get tracks that are out of phase and create some cancellation of the sound source, resulting in thin weak recordings.
Of course this can be avoided with careful placement and measurement. I know it sounds obvious, but this is a no brainer when you want punchy, clear, and artifact free drum overheads.
When stereo miking anything it is best to use a matched pair of mics, or at least the same model. This is because you are treating the two mics as one capturing device. Many people go out and buy a drum mic bundle. One final great reason to record with a mono overhead is that in the end, a mono drum recording can sound way more punchy in the mix. The drums will sound like they do in real life, coming from one location in space.
This helps the brain to focus on the drums and feel them as a powerful instrument. It can sometimes be just what your mix is needing.
This will give your tracks a bit of space in the background will keeping the attack and main tones of the kit coming straight out of the center. I actually like the mono drums better. I like the idea of using a mono overhead, and still panning toms out wide r for some ear candy.
Which can be close miked. I like kick and snare up the center and mono could help make those more focused. The only thing is I kind of really do like stereo cymbals, it sounds cool when I hit 2 crashes and here them left and right. Thinking I should try this mono idea out and if I really like how it sounds it may be worth giving up those cool stereo crashed for it.
Especially come mix time. More time spent making music and having fun grooving, zero time spent hunting down stray resonances and phase issues. Making great-sounding records does NOT have to take for-freaking-ever. Could be cool without losing the focus that mono gives. I know this is pretty old, but just my 2 cents: MS is super cool but tends to make the snare feel very, very smeared.
When you use a mono overhead, do you supplement with close mics for the kick and snare similar to the Glyn Johns method?When you listen to music on a home music system, you are usually listening to a stereo audio source. Your sound system will most likely have two speakers, and out of those speakers you will often hear certain sounds appear to be emanating from one side more than the other.
For example, a drum performance may feature a cymbal that sounds like it is coming from the left speaker more than the right. Stereo sources feature two channels left and right and to be truly stereo the left channel will differ to the right.
So in the previous example, the cymbal is said to be panned more to the left, and as such if you were to listen to each channel individually, the cymbal will simply sound louder in the left channel.
The hats will be slightly to say the left, so if you close your eyes and listen, you should hear that the hats sound slightly louder on the left hand side. When a singer is recorded with a standard microphone, the resulting recording will be in mono. Similarly, a bass guitar recorded from the single lead plugged into its jack input will also be mono.
Returning to our drum kit, if we were to place a microphone in front of each individual instrument, the resulting recordings would each individually be mono. However if we then transfer each of these mono recordings to a mixer we can transform the combination of mono sources into a single stereo source.
This is done by adjusting the panning knob on the mixer for each individual channel. So to recreate the stereo drum kit we discussed previously, we would leave the kick and snare channels centrally panned, the hats panned slightly to the left, and the crash cymbal panned fairly wide to the right. When creating a mix, the position of your mono sources is what defines the perceived stereo field. A mono vocal recording can be transformed into a stereo performance by applying a stereo effect to the recording.
For example a stereo delay which adds panned delays to the source will help give the impression that the mono vocal is actually a stereo vocal. Another way to create stereo is to combine two mono sources. A quick and dirty method is to take a kick drum, copy it, tune down the copy and then place that copy in the right channel panned hard right and the original kick in the left channel panned hard left.
This can be done in any audio editor or even in an MPC. There are other advanced ways of creating stereo sounds from mono sources, many of which require in-depth knowledge of waveform and frequency manipulation.
In the early days of sampling, we tended to use mono sources as they use half as much memory. These days the newer MPCs have enough memory for this to not be a massive problem. If your source sample contains no panning information, quite simply there is no benefit in using a two channel version. Our layered MPC snares are mostly stereo and feature careful waveform manipulation to help control both the stereo field and the resulting fatness of the sound. Contact Help Sign In.

Stereo sounds When you listen to music on a home music system, you are usually listening to a stereo audio source.We make drum samples for your music.
I've used [everything] and I was never fully satisfied with any of them in my mixes. When I add your drums to my mixes I finally get the sound I've been hearing in my head all along.
I am absolutely floored by the quality and variety of your samples I have used many sample libraries through the years and yours are the best by far. I bought the Big Mono Redux yesterday and was completely blown away. Amazing work, thank you. Your drum samples are so vibey; the one word that comes to mind is "alive.
Your drums simply made a good track a great track. The toms especially are just like the ones from that era. Love this kit, thanks for the great work. Your stuff really fits the music that I do and the kits always sit beautifully in mix.
Analogue Drums has the sound that I'd like to get. Your drums sound honest, believable and are perfect for recording. Signup and recieve news, updates and special offers from Analogue Drums.
