In this video the kick drum from a complete drum set recording is compressed using a variety of methods. Firstly an individual kick strike is compressed using automation. This method would be time-consuming for a recording of played drums, but for an individual sample can be very effective in creating new sound textures. The individual strike was then compressed using the Waves CLA-76 1176 emulation, and the standard Pro Tools compressor plug in. The results are compared and the one that is considered most interesting applied to the whole kick drum track. Drum performance by Joe Clancy, recorded by Audio Masterclass.
