    The SM57 is a MUST for any audio engineer, whether in studio environments or in live audio. It's durable, it's classic, and it's highly versatile. It's got a great mid range with excellent rear rejection with its cardioid polar pattern, making it perfect for just about any use.

    I always start by choosing if I want more of the kick or more of the bass. The two are always gonna be fighting for the 40-60hz range and the 80-100hz, so I choose which one will have to take the high ground vs which one I want up front and...
    I always start by choosing if I want more of the kick or more of the bass. The two are always gonna be fighting for the 40-60hz range and the 80-100hz, so I choose which one will have to take the high ground vs which one I want up front and center in that lower part. It depends on the project and the band's sound, but it's an easy way to stop that low end battle that's going on.

    Using high pass filters is a great starting place. Basically none of your tracks are going to need ANYTHING below 100hz, so I always start there. I like to keep those deep lows on my bass and kick drum, but basically everything else I get rid of that. Later on down the road, keeping those lows out of the mix gives you so much more headroom.
    You'll also find that a lot of low-mids are just not necessary and add a lot of muddiness in most of your tracks. Cutting some of the 200-500hz range might have even more of an effect on your mix than the high-pass filters will. If it's not meant to have that deep stuff, I'll usually just dump it.

    Honestly when I started, I thought it would take 15 minutes to mix a song. I would record tracks and be upset when I couldn't get them mixed and mastered in under an hour!

    So for any new audio engineers, I'd recommend you'd just take your time. You learn SO SO much when you go into each tiny detail of every part of a mix. Read a lot and gain as much knowledge as possible, and then gradually and slowly apply that to what you're mixing.

    Mixing Electric Drums

    I spend most of my weekends mixing sound for live events, but one venue I work at uses Roland TD-25KVX with a DI into the stage box (which then send to the board VIA a Dante connection). The drums don't sound too bad, and are super easy to add into the mix, but is there a way I could split the drums into each piece in the mix? I don't know if there's something I can buy for the drum kit to send each piece individually or something like that, but I do miss the extra control of having each piece with its own input. Thanks!
