Last month, I explained how you can construct a realistic-sounding acoustic drum kit in Cubase’s Groove Agent ONE (GAO), and now we’ll learn to how to put the kit to good use by programming a realistic performance, and applying some mix processing. I’ve placed a number of audio examples on the SOS website.
Having configured GAO, your goal is to assign each kit piece to its own channel in the Cubase mixer, in much the same way as you would for a real multitrack recording. As well as level balancing, this will give you control over pan position, EQ, dynamics and ambience, which are all important.
