Microphone bleed is the number one problem for any engineer who regularly records drums. It’s the biggest obstacle between producers and the sound of their dreams. Drumatom enables engineers to reduce or completely eliminate drum bleed, in a way that no other hardware or software can do.
For example, have you ever wished you could remove hihat leakage from the snare track? You can do that with Drumatom, not only during pauses but during exact snare hits as well. Drumatom also allows for flawless leakage reduction in all close microphones, resulting in a natural and open sound. Even a subtle amount of the "Drumatom effect" can free up considerable amounts of headroom for the rest of your tracks.
In addition, by removing leakage from the drum channels you can experiment with your mixing tools (EQs, Compressors, etc) without limitations, until you create the drum sound of your dreams! And to further improve your workflow, check also the drumatom player! The optional plugin companion to drumatom application allows for monitoring the leakage suppression inside the DAW session.
- Fix poorly recorded drums
Improve the quality of faulty recordings by reducing microphone leakage
- Polish your sound by performing deeper individual processing on drum tracks.
Compress the snare track more aggressively, since there’s less or no hi-hat bleed
- Create headroom for the rest of your mix
Slightly reduce the leakage of your drumset while keeping a fully natural drum sound
- Achieve authentic results
Preserve the micro-dynamics of the drummer's performance.
-Preserve low-level signals, such as ghost notes in a snare track
Filter out bleed based on spectral content rather than amplitude
- Build your unique sound signature
Avoid the excessive use of drum sample libraries
