Hi,

We have electronic drums. There are no presets for this. (There are presets for acoustic drums: general overhead, snare, kick drum as separate presets.)

I wanted to "clean up / clear out" the "bottom end" to give the kick drum space all to itself.

However, presets for electronic drums, covering their whole spectrum, would probably be better for me.

Having said that, I think a variable low cut on either the para eq or the EQ would be a useful addition to the T4s and T8s.

Hi Jim S,

Thanks for the added information. That helps.

Can you adjust the individual instruments in the electronic drums module?

For most of the full range electronic instruments covering the whole spectrum, we use this Preset

Category: Utility
Preset: Flat

You can use one of the three ParaEQ bands to attenute the low end. 

  • Set the level of the para EQ to a cut, say -10 dB
  • Set the width to fairly narrow, say .25 octaves
  • Start with a rough estimate of the offending frequency and then move the frequency around until the offending note gets tamed best
  • You can press on the level control to toggle between on and off which gives you a direct A/B so you can judge the effect better

Once you have centered on the frequency you adjust the level and width to taste.

Hi Jim S,

Are you thinking of applying the low-end cut on the drums - or on the other sound sources?

If it's on the other instruments, let's swing back around to the other sound sources. 

I wanted to "clean up / clear out" the "bottom end" to give the kick drum space all to itself.

For which inputs do you want to "clean up / clear out" the "bottom end".

Thanks to everybody for the replies and suggestions.

I've looked at the "low cut" presets.  However, I'm also using the built-in presets for guitars, vocals and bass so can't use both.

I specifically wanted to use low cut on the bass to create some space solely for the kick drum.  (And also to remove any possible "low rumble" from the microphones.)

I suppose I was trying to achieve a bespoke preset for electronic drums that replicated the combined settings for the Kick, Snare and Overhead built-in presets.

I'll continue to experiment with the current para eq.

As an aside, do the presets already have "built in low cut", e.g. 80Hz low cut on vocal presets?  If not, I still think the availability of a variable low cut for each channel would be a good addition to future T4s and T8s updates.

You can accomplish this using the ParaEQ on the channel you are using for bass.

The ToneMatch Presets for vocal microphones already have a low-cut filter applied. See: ToneMatch Microphone Presets

This also applies to the ToneMatch Presets for Acoustic Guitars.

Yes, please see the link above.

Hi, thanks again for the information. Good to hear that the presets already have appropriate low cut applied as standard. (Couldn't find any reference to this in the official manuals.)

Looks like I was on the right lines experimenting with the para eq.  I'll go down this path.

Would still like to see new presets for electronic drums: Roland TD and Yamaha DTX series would be a good start.
