    In the world of live sound, certain topics are guaranteed to draw fellow engineers into a multi-hour discussion that ends in no agreement and a hefty bar tab.

    church sound
    David McLain & Jeremy Carter 03/28/16 10:46 AM,

However, playing loudly enough for the back row of listeners means that the drums are often too loud for the first several rows. It’s even louder… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Punchy drums are what every engineer aims for in a mix and there’s definitely a way to get there. Sometimes just using the right compressors can do the trick, but most of the time it requires some adjustment of the parameters to really get the sound you’re looking for.
