Transient Clarity Snare

Hi Jay, thank you so much for doing this!

I am always amazed by how your snare drums sound. They are loud and super clear, yet the high band on the god particle is barely moving.

When I level my snare to be loud enough in a mix it is not clear anymore and the high band on tgp is taking off like 3-4db. When I go for a clear snare it sounds tiny.

Could you share any advice on how to achieve a loud and clear snare (apart from finding a better sample) and on what I am probably doing wrong :slight_smile:

Thank you!

Try making sure first that your gain staging is correct! You should be hitting about 1db of reduction on the shadow hills
