Create Better Drum Mixes

We've tried out countless dynamics plug-ins at Sweetwater, but we've never tried anything quite like the Sound Radix Drum Leveler compressor/expander plug-in. Apply it to a full drum mix, and Drum Leveler processes each drum hit individually, giving you full dynamic control over each element in the mix. Its combination of compression and expansion lets you add punch to certain hits while reducing the level of unwanted noise and signal bleed. And with mono, stereo, dual mono, and mid-side processing modes, you've got impressive dynamics processing potential with the Sound Radix Drum Leveler plug-in.

Clean up drum tracks by combining compression and expansion

Got a snare drum with too much hi-hat bleed? With the Sound Radix Drum Leveler plug-in you can compress below the threshold to reduce the level of the hi-hat, and add expansion above the threshold to maintain the dynamics of the snare. With separate threshold settings you can affect just the audio you want, while leaving ghost notes and light hits unaffected. It's a unique way to manage the dynamics of your drum tracks, but once you try it we think you'll be hooked.

Sound Radix Drum Leveler Compressor/Expander Plug-in Features at a Glance:
  • Beat detection-based compressor/expander plug-in
  • Allows you to take a full drum mix and process each hit independently
  • Two independent threshold levels let you process specific portions of the dynamic range
  • Powerful tool for cleaning up tracks, adding punch and power, and more
  • Flexible processing modes including Mono, Stereo, Dual Mono, and Mid-Side
Dominate your drum mixes with the Sound Radix Drum Leveler plug-in!

Must Have For Drums

I was working on a mix where a drummer used a lot of ghost notes. It was phenomenal what he was doing but I couldn't hear it in the the mix. I threw the drum Sound Radix Drum Leveler on it and it pulled those ghost notes out and now the song has a much better feel. This is an awesome tool for Kick, Snare and even Toms. Highly recommended.

My New Secret Weapon

If you're really into the modern and punchy sound of drum sample replacement / reinforcement, yet prefer the rawness of natural drums, you need this plugin. It can make every hit in your face like samples can, (compression set to 100%) but still sound real and natural. The gate is absolutely wonderful, as it is also an expander that lets you transparently attenuate only the bleed between hits. You can do so much with this thing. I highly recommend downloading the trial and testing it out for yourself!
