|Kick Drum Sound for a recording session|
Ok, so, you know what kind of music we play (Setlist attached) and if we would play more personal instrumental music, it will be jazz rock/Fusion and jazz...
But, could you describe to me what are the main characteristics of kick sound for each other type of music below and which one could be use for more than one style, while not being the most average all around kit sound:
Metal: just the click, very short boom, medium or high pitched etc?
Jazz: losing boomy resonant kick with a lot of low end or?
Funk: Ok, tell me?
Dance: Same, tell me?
Jazz rock and rock ditto, let me know what kind of kick sound I should reach out for, for each type is music.
Based on that, what would be the main characteristics I should be focus on our kick sound for the covers we play we play?
Should it be a good attack in the low medium but not too clicky with only high medium as they seem to have in Metal?
I think I need a nice thump that should be the foundation in vibration and vibe for the bass guitar to sit on, while the bass will have also some extra high to play the slap bass parts...but the kick should be the link to the bass drums in term of frequencies in our music or should it be completely separate in Term of frequency range?
The the boom, the resonance, what lengtht, what volume, short sustain, medium etc....
And then, based on what you would have told me what would be the heads I should buy if we don't know the sound of it...
Could you give me your advices on that?
