    Need advice on panning drums

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'm putting together a new sample drum kit and could use some advice on how to stereofy it. I didn't have much trouble with my previous setup, 6 toms and 4 crashes, but my new cool kick ya in the head monster kit has 6 octobans 6 toms 2 timbalitos 2 slightly different kicks and 14 various cymbals not counting hats and ride. I've pretty much got the volumes taken care of. Anyone got any tips? Maybe how far left/right to go, or if I should cut the volume for drums in the back of the room. I don't know, whatever you got will be helpful.

    Imagine you sit bang center behind the kit - pan everything exactly where it is in relation to you.
    If you have one kick - center it.
    If you have 2 different kicks, 9 and 3o'clock.
    HH fractionally left, Snare fractionally right.
    That is a standard setup - the other standard is the above in reverse, as you would hear / see standing in front of a kit.

    That is exactly what I read in David Gibson's book, "The Art of Mixing."

    I donīt like this L/R double kick panning. This sounds like kick bouncing from side to side.

    Ditto. It may produce an interesting effect, but generally stick to similar panning for double kick patterns.

    depends on taste - and depends on the drummer, and if he can tune his kit. Most cannot
