    Not sure what to tell u about how to get em soundin right, but after layerin them it might be a good idea to save those so u have em for later. Usually i can get my hats to sound decent with a little filtering, chorus and or reverb. Hope that helped, good luck :who_wants

    Compression is important for hats.... you want a really low threshold with a really high ratio... up the attack until you get a nice ting... a little warm distortion afterwards too...

    Sounds right,I also feel that the filter,reverb method of tweaking out them hats is the best and most responsive.

    amen hat arrangement is just a ride cymbal on every half beat, you might be best taking samples from old breaks rather than clean samples from drum machines and the likes, it'll save you a lot of trouble as they got that sound already.

    I don't use fruity loops.

    hi-pass filter (there is a lot of uneeded bottom in cymbals and hats) or negative eq'ing in the 200-500 regions (surf the parametric) because that is only mud and noise which is unneeded, what you want is sparkle to bring em out.
