I didn't put a ton of processing on this one. Mainly just some compression here and there. Very minimal eq...mainly just cleaned up a little recording mud here and there. The huge sound you are hearing is a result of the room we recorded in more than anything...and of course the drums.

Thanks Vukan. Josh has done a great job on this. I understand the need for compression to define the drums in such a big reflecting room, & eq to clean up / emphasise too. The whole production approach suits the drum's character perfectly.Thanks, Andy!
Here are the tracking notes from Josh:
I think the very present nature of the toms is more of a recording balance thing than anything else, & the Josephsons bring that further to the fore. It's a big reflective room, & that's mostly responsible for to overly "big stadium" vibe + note extending reverb.And: In case that you say: It really sounds like that, then I state, that for me, this drumset is way too boomy, toms are projecting much too much too much. Some people might like that "in your face" sound, but for me personally, that is a no-go.
