I have seen one video where someone was just importing the Joe Barresi SDX to Superior Drummer and was listening to it on his studio monitors and recording the camera.
(I have reeled the video to the point of interest)
I have found this sound extremely gritty and usable. As an experiment I have recorded some guitars and bass over it (after some denoising) and still felt the kick drum and snare cuts trough the mix and it's very tight.
This is how it sounds with guitars
(please note that I did not EQd or compressed any further!)
So I'd like to replicate this sound, because I find this a super starting point, I would only make some smaller adjustments.
I tried distorting it, but the bass frequencies started to feel weird and the cymbals were noticeably more distorted.
How would you replicate the saturation, the distortion and the room of that recording with adding effects only to the main drum bus?
(i.e. you open Superior Drummer with default preset and apply DSP effects on the drum bus without individual tweaking).
I have like to have this sound as a starting point, from where I can refine the individual drum tracks. (As a top-down method: starting with the whole drum kit and then playing with the individual mic tracks).
