  • Snare sound!

    Just got my TD8KV on Tuesday. Man, this thing is cool. The only things I don't like about it so far is:

    - The toms sounds too electronic for me and I get the 'machine-gun' effect on them all the time. Any settings to fix this?

    - The EQ is weak.

    - The snare sounds are limited. I would like better sounding snares.

    Now, my question: How can I get a nice studio snare sound. Like for example, Staind, Creed. Even if I don't listen to these bands, I love their drum sounds. Is there any presets that somebody can suggest?

    Thanks,
    Kornalius.

      to make the snare sound more like cred or staind your gonna wanna add some serious compression. Try lowering threshold to like -40 and setting the ratio 10:1 and bring up the volume on the snare. this should give it a tight cracking pop sound.

        Setting the ration 10:1? Where is that on the TD8? I don't remember seeing this.

          ooops sorry, I dont have a td-8 I have aatd-10. I just assumed the td8 has an onboard compressor similar to the td-10. Whatever it has, try adding some serious compression to your snare. this should help you try to match the snare sounds you hear on those rock/metal cd's.

            ????????????????
            What the.....???
            How do you NOT listen to a band and still like their drum sounds????
            That's like saying 'I've never held a drum stick but I sure like the way they feel!!'

            (Just hasseling dude, I know what you were trying to say)

            As far as trying to get a good snare sound? My advice is to use an acoustic snare!!

            , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...
