    Just wondering if anybody would mind posting one of there fl projects showing how there drums are made, im trying to make dark sounding drums but they always sound to clean. Ive read numerous ammounts and watched heaps of videos. The videos aimed more at dance floor dnb. What im doing at the moment is making my kick snare with vengance sample packs then layering bits of breaks making sure not to include the snare. Seeing a few examples would help me. Its how i learn

    I don't use FL so can't give you any examples in that, but if they're sounding too clean, then double track to thicken the sound, then add a hint of distortion, and a fitting reverb to give them real presence

    A little distortion may help but don't overdo it. REmember to listen to the other stuff in the tune along with the drums, so you dont make them too prominent. If you do, it's really hard to fit any other sounds in there.

    I dont use FL anymore but a little overdrive to certain hits can make the drums a little 'dirtier'
