Bass drum by convention is ch1 on the board. You need a good drum and a good mic
First set eq flat and pfl ch1, set gain control so drum just hits peak/or red when hit hard.
Send ch to drum group (1+2) on board, or route to master (L+R), depending on type board. Then listen to drum ONLY through the system, and adjust eq so it sounds good at low level then turn it up and keep it sounding good. If it keeps peaking the ch then turn down gain.
There are toys (inserts) you can use noise gates and compressors if available,
Sound is objective and can not be learnt without doing it , good luck. remember good low level sound will always be better than really bad lound sound, start low make it good then make it loud.
Good drums do not need much eq. Get the drum right first.
Hi, If you have small electronics knowledge this might help you. First fine in each mixer the amplifiers line In if your mixer has two amplifiers then you have four line In. Disconnect this line from your mixer and build a circuit Line out multiflier. You can use op amp for this application this is a simple circuit. You made two input and four outputs. If you are interested i can send you a schematic diagram.
first of all you must connect as follows. 1-preamp/mixer-------equalizer/reverb unit------amp-----speakers(keep all equalizer control to 0db). 2-check your cables for good connector no touching of any inner wire to chassis of any equipment. 3-go to radio shack and buy(ground-loop isolator). parts code(270-054)-----better to buy two pieces and connect it between your equipment.
You will want to connect all of your devices to the pre-amp or receiver, then connect the outputs of your pre-amp/receiver to the inputs of the EQ. Then connect the outputs of the EQ to the inputs on the amplifier or receiver. If you give me some model numbers, I would be able to tell you exactly which cables go where.
There are 2 ways to have an EQ in the system. If the mixer (1204) has inserts for the mains, you can use a set of insert cables to connect the EQ. If not, connect the Output of the mixer to the Input of the EQ and the Output of the EQ to the Input of the Amp.
The insert cables will allow you to electrically connect the EQ as described above only using a single set of cables. These cables are 1/4" balanced or stereo at one end (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) and dual XLR at the other. You will need 2 insert cables, one for right and one for left.
