Hi hats



it “fools” your ear into hearing it as stereo (even though it is literally mono)

also gives a lot of “audio breathing room” for other elements in the track

try it out and listen for yourself



as if hihats werent fucky enough

need to pick them out of the subs with eq or filter that ruin their transients
or go thru endless hihat sub combinations
mono them and listen to see (ffs)
-if they work as pseudo mind mono-stereo or hard panned dead centre full blast,
maybe then sidechain them
then find out they tonally clash with another element you want to put in

cymbals masterclass imo

the little sub-bass pulse under the hat in the intro is so rude to my ears
