How To Create A Fake Drum Room Sound



We all want massive drum tones that sound like they were recorded in a huge room in a multimillion-dollar studio, but most of us are recording in bedrooms or basements or other small home studio rooms.


Until pretty recently, this was me too! My old home studio was small and dead sounding, but I was working with pop-punk and modern rock bands that wanted that huge, roomy drum sound. 


This lead to me spending hours and hours over months and years trying different methods of getting a fake room sound until I finally came up with a method that sounds convincing! 


Even now that I have a great sounding drum room in my studio, I'm still sent tracks to mix all the time that were recorded in bedrooms or basements and have no room mics, so I'm still using this trick all the time!
