Altering actual balance between instruments on a two channel recording is pretty tough. You can always try to pull down the fundamental, but for an instrument like snare, you're gonna have a very hard time getting it down far enough without effecting pretty much every other instrument on stage. If it's center stage you can try pulling down the center using a plugin like Waves Center.

Sounds pretty good to me. Almost sounds like you might just be able to bring up the vocals.

As someone else said. RX7. Use the Music Rebalance portion.

I'd use a compressor plugin, if you get the threshhold, attack and release right, you can bring down the level of those drum hits without affecting the rest of the sound.
Recording:
Capsules: Schoeps mk41v (x2), mk22 (x2), mk3 (x2), mk21 & mk8
Cables: 2x nbob KCY, 1 pair nbob actives, GAKables 10' & 20' 6-channel snakes, Darktrain 2 & 4 channel KCY and mini xlr extensions:
Preamps:    Schoeps VMS 02iub, Naiant IPA, Sound Devices Mixpre6 I
Recorders: Sound Devices Mixpre6 I, Sony PCM m10

Home Playback: Mac Mini> Mytek Brooklyn+> McIntosh MC162> Eminent Tech LFT-16; Musical Fidelity xCan v2> Hifiman HE-4XX / Beyerdynamic DT880

Office Playback: iMac> Grace m903> AKG k701 / Hifiman HE-400

Yeah...  but only RX7 advanced has that tool. But with it and $1200 it will fix a lot of stuff.   ;)
They'll have a sale in a few months and you can get it for half.

I bought RX 7 Standard when it was on sale and Music Rebalance is included.

Agreed, I'd use a compressor myself. If something is poking out like that I'll usually try to use the compressor in parallel so I'm bringing up the quieter stuff rather than squashing the peaks, but sometimes it works better to do it the other way.


I haven't tried Rx for this but you can get free compressors.

Yeah.  With the right source material, I've been able to make the band not have a bass player at all, without it influencing the kick drum.  Make the vocals twice as loud.  Etc.

Only advice you already thought of...try to pull down the highs/mids with the Equalizer...should at least downcrease the snaredrume a bit...listening to the sample the snaredrums sounds quite "bassy and full-on"...Also in "Cool Edit Pro (Audobe) there was a function called "equalize more music"...which downcreases the drums a bit (It does a calculated equalizer)...yet I´m sure you will get the same results if you do the equalizing manually too.

If I get some more ideas I´ll bring them on.

Good luck!
