    I guess you mean the open "offbeat" one. It's an open hi hat with a phaser/flanger over it. Pretty much any phaser should do it, I'm sure. The other hi hats has some kind of echo on them, I think, to make them a bit busy.

    Thanks man! I've tried with phaser/flanger, but with my samples i don't get close enough...just missing that kind of "aspirated" attack.

    like boooke said, to me it sounds like a phaser or flanger on an open hat. cycle through diff open hat samples n try different phaser/flanger settings until you get close.

    You're welcome, mate. It all boils down to signal gain, eventually. When you say "aspirated" attack, you mean it kind of fades in, or lack a punch in the beginning? Some DAWs (I use Cubase) allow you to set a volume fader on each sample, others seem to lack this, but then you can always try with a transient shaper plug in, I guess, or modulate the gain/volume of the sample when it kicks in.
