I would like to thank the whole Audified crew so much again for all the hard work and support for my ideas. You are the best! Thank you!
After the very successful ToneSpot Bass and Acoustic plugins, I'm back with the newborn to the ToneSpot family. This time it's all about the drums.
Let me introduce this newborn of the ToneSpot family.
ToneSpot Drum Pro is an insane tone hunting tool. It's incredibly flexible but perfectly tailored for the fast and intuitive work at the same time. For some genres you really need that monstrous amount of processing power & flexibility while for other ones you just need some broad shaping and a cup of saturation. ToneSpot Drum Pro is ready for all situations. You can get your dream tone no matter what microphone, preamp, sample pack or plugin you are using if the ToneSpot Drum Pro is in the next plug-in insert in your chain.
You need that outstanding drum tone you are hearing on your favorite album. So you bought an awesome drumkit or a drum machine. Maybe you have also bought some quality triggers and beautiful drum samples to extend your tonal palette, you have bought expensive rack units and phenomenal microphones. You use many hi-end plugins. But what? Your dream-tone is not there when recorded and mixed with the rest of the band? You are endlessly tweaking and tweaking your sound, you tried everything. No success. Why? Drums can take a lot of processing. It’s because the drums get a lot of attention in the music and for some genres are really crucial. So it´s very important to get the drums sound just right. Drums can fight against busy arrangement with several layers of instruments. Or the recordings are sounding too sterile, thin or harsh. So you need the tone that can cut through. The drum tone has to be punchy and fat sounding, but it also needs to have a lot of clarity and tightness at the same time. But it’s not all! Even if the drums are heavily processed, sometimes they still also have to be very natural sounding at some point. And that's why you need ToneSpot.
Let's talk engineering for a while, shall we?
When a professional audio engineer is building that awesome tone in the studio, he is often running it through some heavy lifting. Blending several drum samples with massive filtering, heavy compression, equalization, saturation or even some multiband processing and maybe some other crazy stuff. And it is no secret that the top engineers often run the signal through their chains twice or three times in series until both the engineer and the artist are 100% satisfied with the result. So there is a lot of stuff to do when building a perfect drum tone. There are very few products tailored for the drums post-processing, but most today’s engineers use very similar workflow.
What matters? Music or sound?
Both. Great musical ideas need a great sound. Music industry changed over years. The quality of sound and sound aesthetics often determine the success of the music. It’s not enough to write good music anymore. You need breathtaking sound to get attention. And... If you have an inspiring sound, you write and play better music. You have the ideas, we have the tool, so… Lets get inspired by the sound!
