Hi,

I like toms to sound like in Nina Hagen's African reggae tune, and try to have it with flanger, but result is not good...

Somebody have a tip maybe ??

Thanks,

Fred

If you get stuck I can mic some old toms up - muck around with flange.
I'm pretty new at ardour though.

Only just heard the tune now - will have to listen to it again with headphones carefully :)
Cheers

They sound like Timbales. If they are toms they are probably really small tuned kinda loose with no bottom heads, and what you're hearing is not flanger but the phase discrepancies from them bleeding into all the other drum mics.
