On Is This It there were three songs where I processed the three main drums (kick, snare, hi hat) with several plug-in EQ's (filterbank), and a gate to get a robotic sound. I believe on The Way It Is (just reminded myself by listening to it) thats the heroic Amp Farm plug in on the snare track only, whci lets the bleed from the other drum pieces also have a wee bit of that flavor!

The drums were recorded rather traditionally with a Beta 52 on the kick, sm 57 on snare, two Neumann's for overheads and Senheisser 421's on toms..
SSL and API preamps were used,,, no compression (for the tracking) No groups either (busses) since I hadn't learned about that yet!
