    I've been messing around with the Amen break for some time now, but I'm missing one fundamental bit of it. The cymbal sample. In all the master Amen samples that have appeared over the Internet, none seem to contain a cymbal in the supplied audio. What cymbal samples are you people using?

    Not to worry mate, I'm just experimenting with it as a beginner, then I'm probably going to move on.

    Yea, that's cause most of the amens you'll hear on the web are just the one-bar looped versions. Full drum solo break is the 4-bar loop which is often used to finish a sequence in a song or close off a cadence obviously, due to the "finality" that the different rhythmic pattern with the cymbal at the end.
