MGP24X Mixer, Kick Drum Compression

Unread post by CherryBombMike » Fri Jan 18, 2019 2:01 pm

Hi All, new here, and looking for some advice.
I have just joined the Yamaha world, with an MGP24X mixer.
We're a Rock/Metal band, and wondered if you guys could offer any good advice on multi-band compressor settings for the kick drum.
I guess we're looking for that really defined kick sound, plenty of initial click/punch, but not too much boom and mush afterwards.
Drum will be mic'd with a Shure Beta 52. Kick is a good Tama one, sounds good, doesn't have too much unwanted natural boom and resonance.
Just wondering if you guys knew any compressor tricks to get that maybe "Metallica" kick drum sound.
Cheers

Hi Mike, welcome to the forums :)

As you may have guessed we don't have many drummers around here but we do have plenty of members who use mixers of one type or another. Speaking for myself I just use a small desktop Behringer QX1202 but I don't really use any of the effect on it and that includes compression. I run it into the Mac and do all the effects in Logic or Studio One Artist.

Are you using the MGP24X for live work or recording...or perhaps both?
