Gated Reverb on Drums

While the way drummers played and tuned their instruments changed over the decades, the sound aesthetics evolved as well.

Due to new post-production possibilities and new effects, the sound was not only determined by the drummer but also the producer – working with the signals afterwards.

Due to that process, sounds like the use of gated reverb became important and characteristic musical tools in the 80s.

Whenever a snare drum with this effect is used in musical productions, it immediately brings up a connection to this specific time.

Creating such recognizable sounds can shape the aesthetics of a musical decade a lot.

Using this effect on the whole drum mix or only single instruments also makes a huge different when it comes to shaping the overall drum sound.

In this Video we give you an insight in how a drum set can be tuned to end up with this sound aesthetic and how gated reverb changes the sound drastically.
