Desperately Need Someone To EQ Drum Samples For Me

Post by phoenixcrash » Sat Oct 08, 2011 2:18 pm

Been using Beatcraft for a few years now and I only use samples in my kits that came with the program. I've been trying and trying to get them to sound as close to a real kit as possible. The only thing holding me back is finding the sweet spot on the EQ for each sample.

The kick is probably the most important because it's the one that I'm having the hardest time getting right. But I do need toms, snare, and crash cymbals. Some hi-hats with different levels of looseness.

98% of the samples I use are found in the Dry Studio Kit.
I really just need someone to take the samples located in the Dry Studio Kit and EQ each one for me, then email them to me or something. What I am going for is something really close to the kit sound of Five Finger Death Punch. If someone would take the time to help me out, I'd be eternally grateful and would be willing to give them my copy of Mixcraft 4 (got 5 now, so I don't need it). Any and all help would be appreciated, as I've worked and worked on this and just can't seem to get it right. So I'm looking for someone to EQ each sample and maybe even add some of their own crash cymbals and hi-hat samples.

Like I said brothers: I need something almost identical to FFDP. :?

Drum sounds that come from bands like five finger death punch are samples. It's one of the dissapointing things about todays metal music.
However, they are samples of real drums so you are in luck.
First have a look at this video tutorial, it's for mixcraft and recording real drums, but you can apply the same effect and eq techniques to beatcraft.
Video tutorial here
It's an 8 part video, there's a couple parts dedicated to drum sound.
