Drum Overheads Automation

A simple trick of creating more energy and “excitement” in the chorus of a song is to simply automate the drums overhead. The key is to take the overhead tracks that are mixed the way the mixer wants the entire song to be. Using the automation tool in the DAW to bump up the volume of the overheads, may be 3db in the choruses. This will create a natural change in the track with energy.
