Last week on another thread, I commented that specific production styles don't prohibit learning techniques from producers who aren't within your genre. Here's a perfect example. Along with Recording Revolution (which recently featured a course with Jacquire King), I also subscribe to Jordan Valeriotte's blog, Hardcore Music Studio ... he focuses on metal and other heavy forms. But this trick for making the snare pop using a mono room mix was pretty impressive. It works on virtual drums like EZD, even though his example was from miked-up drums. This helped solved a lingering problem of mine, getting some beef on the snare in a dense mix. Maybe it'll work for you too.
