Video: How to Mix a Snare Drum Like a Pro with Brian Deck

Over the past few months, Brian Deck has been sharing with us his tips and tricks for mixing like a pro. He has given advice on creative ways to mix with overhead and room mics, how best to make digital mixes sound analog, and most recently, how to mix radio-ready vocals.

Today, he's drilling down on snare drums and, more specifically, how to mix them like a pro using plugins. In the video above, he runs through a variety of different drum mixing examples spanning a slew of different genres, from rock to hip-hop, and demonstrates which UAD plugins he likes to use and to what degrees to suit each snare style.

From now through June 30, 2021, customers of select brand-new Apollo interfaces will receive free plugins from Auto-Tune, Helios, Teletronix, and UA, all designed for studio-quality vocals. Find the full list of qualifying interfaces and more details at UA's Desktop Platinum Vocal Promo page here. Then find your Apollo in the Universal Audio Reverb Shop.
