Maschine Tutorial – Mixing Tips for Wide, Full Drums

Get more Maschine tutorials –

In this video for Native Instruments Maschine, learn several mixing and arranging tips to make your drums sound full and wide across the stereo spectrum.

I go through my process of layering and mixing drum sounds in the context of a specific project. First, I layer snare sounds and use panning to widen the sound. Then, I show how several hi-hat samples can be used, each one with a different pan setting. I move on to talk about additional drum elements such as miscellaneous percussion and a crash symbol.

I also cover several ideas relating to effects. Chorus can be used to achieve a wide sound, and a beat delay can be set to echo a sound back and forth between left and right channels. To finish the drums, I add some slight reverb and a Waves Stereo Imager to the drum group.

Thank you for watching!
