I'm using the Progressive Foundry library with Superior Drummer 2.0 and no matter what snare I select, there is this terrible BOOM that just pops out over the rest of the mix on random snare hits. This is so difficult to deal with because some of the snare hits just sound BRILLIANT and perfect, and then others sound terrible and have this HARD FLUB. "Hard flub" is probably the best way I can describe this sound. I only notice it on laptop speakers and my cell phone speakers, and I don't notice it on any professional/reference mixes that I play back through these same speakers. So I can be content with the snare on my monitors and in my car and on my headphones, but when it comes to the medium that most people check out new music through - their laptops and phones - the snare randomly flubs all over the mix. All of this despite a LOT of dynamic control on the snare track. I've dialed it back several times to make sure the HARD FLUB wasn't some kind of artifact from too much compression, but it actually only gets worse the dryer the track becomes. But after a certain amount of processing there is a diminishing return as to how much more it gets tamed. I've got it comp'd hard, experimented with all kinds of attack and release times, different ratios, different SNARES themselves in the SD setup. Different mic balances and processing in the SD mixer, different velocities, different send levels to the room mic, to the parallel comp bus... everything. Well, everything I can think of. Is my only solution to automate the low-end dB of every single snare hit throughout the entire album? I thought this is what compression and dynamic control is for, so that I don't have to do such terribly tedious things. I like automating and automate a lot, but if I have to automate the low-end of the snare for every snare hit... that just strikes me as a sign that I must be processing the snare incorrectly, or that something else is wrong with it. Any advice? Do I have to use RIMSHOTS on every single hit? Those are less boomy. But I don't want that sound, not for every snare hit on the album.
