How to achieve a booming snare drum

If you feel like your snare isn't carrying enough energy in the mix, it may be because it's too "thin".

This is especially true for snares that come with some room sound, which is wanted if you want the snare to sound big.


Boosting the low end, however, will inevitably lead to spikes in volume very quickly, so we need to control it somehow.

You can use a limiter, a clipper or whatever tool you want to keep the peak of the snare drum in check.
