Default New Synth-Percussion Aesthetic I've Noticed since Last Year



In this YouTube video:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VJClsn3LiAg&t=90sec

The percussive add-on features a snare sound with just a touch of 3-4kHz, but enough to sound ANNOYING. I don't know of any snare that makes that sound in actual life.

I hear the same percussive signature in many TV and radio commercials also, but only as far back as mid-2020. Anyone else?

Just a particularly annoying current EQ trend. The 'drumset' level is
also way OTT.

Must be incredibly annoying (painful even) on the also current trend of
over-bright headphones with lots of bass and subdued mids.

There should be an emergency effort made to ensure that Gen--Ys and Zs learn what a real drum kit sounds like!
