    found this pretty interesting, checked some of the demos of those packs and those drum dog layered drums look pretty decent tbh.


    what are your go-to-packs for one shots? vengeance? bhk? goldbaby? or one of those?

    i usually end up using snares from breaks most of the time, layered with some 909 or a vengeance hit (dont like those that much so try to avoid nowerdays..)

    opinions?

    i find snares from loops much better than vengeance hits, they sound over compressed and shite imo

    vengeance pack snares = compressed white noise

    some of them are very usable tho. lots of it is shite but you get some good hits with it, esp the kicks.

    lol i dunno man but when it comes to longer snares its all about charachter so you want the wood or the steel to come out, otherwise a kick and some distorted something will become a great click snare

    I use a lot of vengeance kicks, they're pretty decent.. the snares are pretty dogshit on their own, but I find them useful if you want to add a bit of splash to a good snare you've found elsewhere.

    I like a lot of loopmaster's packs: pure drum & bass, soundbwoy killah, untold dubstep producer, etc.. all quality packs. I only use the one hit samples from these packs, but they also have lots of quality loops that someone could no doubt make use from too.

    Also I use a lot of one shots from packs I've found on freesound.org.. http://www.freesound.org/people/crispydinner/ << that guy for example. he's a bit of a legend when it comes to making one shots.

    I actually use a ton of the drums from the kits that ship with Logic, especially ones under the "Single Drums" category of the EXS24. Other then that I use some sampled 909 & 808 kits a d/l from some where ages ago and demo packs from all over the place.

    I've been making a lot of drums using sculpture or the ES2 tbh then bouncing down to audio ... layering ... applying dynamics processing ect then gated reverb.

    What I don't like about a lot of sample packs is that a lot of the hits are layered with high hats.

    Check out the sample packs that come with the cds in computer music and future music magazines. There are some hidden gems in there.

    6/7/8/909 usually make it into my tunes, apart from that I use a combination of hits, i've got 8 favorite snares that all layer up nicely together to give a wide range of sounds, and 3 kicks which i love and probly over use, but fuk it, theyr fat.
