    Question Rare Drums in My Happy Ending - Avril Lavigne

    Short introduction:
    Hi, I'm an amateur music producer and I'm new here. I was googling for the right forum to ask this, and then I came here .


    As to the reason I'm making this thread, there's this song, My Happy Ending from Avril Lavigne. It is a rock song but it has a few parts where it doesn't use a drumkit that sounds like a "real" one. I'm not sure if they either put some filters and reverb on the real drumkit in those parts or that they made the whole thing in FL Studio (or any other music producing program).

    Here's a video containing the Drums Master Track of the song:



    On 0:07-0:13 and 0:25-1:00, you can hear the rare drums. On 1:33-2:07, you can hear both the real drumkit and rare drumkit.

    I was hoping you guys may be able to explain me what they did here, to make the drums sound like this, as I really like the sound of it and I'd like to be able to recreate something like this myself.


    Thanks in advance.

    Could be both honestly. It sounds like they cranked the shit out of a filter + flanger, and killed the sample decay to make them super short. The latter is why it contrasts so much with the "real" drums, specially with the open HH.

    Mm, yea.

    I still wouldn't know how to recreate this effect in FL Studio though. :#
