Getting less reverb in MODO Drum

Recommended Posts

Rather than search for the original topic...

I've been working with MODO Drum this week. 

The driest sounds are created by using the Booth as the room and in the Mixer on the right hand side near the middle of the vertical plane there are tabs for Room and OH, click those, turn them down all the way. They are adding ambience.

The Rock drum set is pretty dry already, I need to try others. Surprisingly, the Jazz kit is soaking wet with reverb. 

It took a chunk of my life to get here and I am still not sure where "here" is.

I went deeper last night and found that stripping out the OH and Room mics takes away the realistic part of the drum sound and leaves the modeled part.

Some pretty weird stuff, not sure I like it at all. 

I know I don't care for the way they catalogued the beats, by "song name" and I've never heard of one of these songs.

The drummer is really good but seems a bit limited.


So, for the project I'm working on now I've gone back to NI Studio Drummer. The catalog is sectioned into styles (Pop, Blues, Country, Metal, Rock, Jazz etc.) The sounds are all recorded drums with no modeling so stripping them back a bit leaves a snare drum or kick drum, not some unexpected alien sound. 

Last but not least, the drummer is truly excellent.


What I've learned at this point is that I need to "write" my own kick and snare patterns and the rest of it will be "puzzle pieces" if I use anything. 

It also looks like it will sound better sometimes to use more than one track to place sounds so you don't have to cut any tails on any drums. 


Moving forward, little by little. I'm sure I'll revisit MODO drum again at some point, right now I just want to get some songs recorded.
