Snare EQ And Compression
1. Snare ring typically lingers in between as reduced as 500Hz and as high as 900Hz (start cutting with your EQ around 650Hz to start locating the ring). Be mindful as the low-end of this variety is additionally where you'll get body to your snare sound you don't want it to be too hollow seeming or thin, so do not cut too much and do so with a slim Q worth.
2. Snare attack. The part of the attack sound. Pulling that frequency array back will soften the attack, improving it can help bring it out, however be cautious due to the fact that too much of that variety could make the actual snares sound extremely "plasticy" and weak rather than the softer snares that individuals have a tendency to like (more on snares sound below).
3. Snare body / beef. It's perfectly OKAY to have some low-end that you 'd normally think must just be for the kick drum in your snare sound. Not "HUGE" or anything, but a little to give some even more beef to the punch of the snare drum. You also have a great deal of tone down there (90Hz - 150Hz) with which you could experiment a little bit. Once more, don't push it hard, however don't always cut it, either.
4. Snare body / boomy. The 200-500Hz variety is challenging. There's great deals of body and fullness there, however there's likewise the dreaded "boxy and boomy" frequencies (normally around 350Hz - 450Hz). So while cutting 350 could help tighten up the snare, it could additionally result in it lose a great deal of fullness. Try slim EQs and using compression prior to the EQ to see if that can help get some control over the lesser frequencies before you begin EQing in the signal chain.
5. Attack times are essential: a truly rapid attack will make sure the first stick attack is compressed, whereas a slow-moving attack will "let the stick through" and then compress the body and tone of the snare drum more. As you begin to press a snare drum you'll additionally subtly lose some of the reduced frequencies (so try that rather than cutting with an EQ to see if it helps). It you put a really difficult limiter on it, the ring of the snare will be greatly enhanced (wicked hard limiter, then improve your output gain a lot to recompense).
