Help - advice needed for Getting good drum set sound results

Hello there,

I have recorded a drum set in LE5 in 8 tracks (BD, Snare, 3 Toms, 3 Over Heads).
I have sound sources which I am pleased with for the moment.
I would like to get some advice about the possible ways I can improve my final result through LE5. That means:
How to do things (if needed) with the software such as Gating, EQing, Effects, Audio process and such…

I am pretty new to Cubase and don’t have a clue about how to improve the “natural” results that I already have.

Any advice, thoughts, tips will be welcomed and greatly appreciated.


Gidi: Are you talking about Midi or Audio Drum Tracks. :question:
I Presume all the individual Drums exist on there own tracks :question:
When it comes to EQ, Gating etc. have you clicked on the “E” Button
on each individual channel strip for EQ’S etc.

Gidi: What type of computer are you using PC, Mac, Laptop
What is your operating system Windows–Mac etc. :question:

PS: Not sure if this helps ya with Cubase LE5
but newer versions of Cubase 5-6-7 etc. IMO all have
great presets for instruments like Drums. Great for
Learning what your asking :wink:

Hi Jack,
Thanks for your responase.

Are you talking about Midi or Audio Drum Tracks. > :question: >

I am talking about Audio tracks and I do have them on separate tracks for each, 8 tracks in total:

BD x 1
Snare x 1
Tom x 3
Over Head x2
Room/Ambiance Condenser.

I know about the Edit button. What I am looking for is for advice/Tips on how to use the different LE 5 tools at hand.
If not specific instructions, then a reference to a source of good information.

I have added the some details about my equipment in the signature section.

Thanks Again.

Gidi: Try some youtube videos

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
