I'd been experimenting a lot on how to have a huge sounding drums like you hear in Symphonic Music. I want it to sound huge without overpowering other sections such as strings and woodwinds.
Is there anyway on how to do it? To make sound awesome? Thanks!
There are several ways to do this: First you'll need some good drum samples of Timpani and Kettle Drums for symphonic drums. I'm sure you can find several free ones, or you can check these out if you're willing to pay a lot of money to buy them.
Once you've got the samples, you can try layering them to get a larger more dynamic sound. Reverb and EQing also help here to perfect the noise into the sound you need. Other than that, you can also try backing the drums up with strings and other symphonic instruments.
I'm not trying to showcase my stuff or anything, but the below piece has some pretty decent drums and should give u and idea of how to play them and stuff:
- 4.36 / 5.00

This one also has the same type of drums, but used in a different scenario to a different effect:
- 4.35 / 5.00
