Drum Compression – Api 2500, Shadow Hills Dual Vandergraph

Hello everyone!

Yesterday evening i took some time to print few drum tracks with my Api 2500 and Shadow Hills Dual Vandergraph in insert. Was interesting to listen how they sound with “similar” settings and similar gain reduction and how they sound compared to the original drum track. The levels of the tracks are not perfectly matched, but if you drag and drop them in your DAW you can easily adjust the level.

The API 2500 files have got also a bit of tube saturation from the Culture Vulture.

You’ll find in the dropbox folder below all the files, original drum track and the different combination. ( different gain reductions, different settings and combination of both compressors ).


Enjoy your listening.
