Hi Jens,

Thanks for taking the time.

My question is about real drums in your mixes.
How much of your final mixes is real drums and to what extend do you rely on samples?
For samples, do you create your own from the actual drum tracking or do you have a dedicated (own or bought) set with specific qualities (e.g. clicky kick, boomy kick, punch snare etc.) that you use to fix specific issues?

Hey Dirk! Oh, that really depends on how it's recorded and played, and what's surrounding and what style we're going for.

The fast answer is: as natural as I can get them, without compromising a sound I find good, or perhaps the vision of the artist. Some projects will be without triggers, while others will rely heavily on them. I answered a similar question above regarding what samples I'm using here.

I do have a large template session that I import data from as a starting point, where I can quickly find my favourites for the current project. In there I have samples that cover most situations and specific needs.
