i've spent hours using fabfilter saturn, ozone 5, camelphat on a plain amen break and still can't get close to that heavy, slightly distorted techstep sound. main examples are the tramen, i know Dom sampled that amen from an old hardcore album. i know there are other layers involved but what i'm focused on is his amen. sourcing his amen would be impossible but i wouldn't want to do that anyway because i don't want to sample, i'm dying to try to figure out how to process a break to get as similar of a sound as possible. i'd like to use it on other breaks aside from the amen. i've just spent so much time experimenting with filters and layering with additional breaks that i'm burned out and posting in a desperate attempt that somebody has gotten a similar-ish sound from processing a sampled funk break before and can help provide guidance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CchTEMLhJuQ&t=2m39s ^ Trace - Mutant Revisited http://www34.zippyshare.com/v/55008988/file.html ^ the "gappamen" break, it's a random amen that i have in my collection along with several others http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9oQeW7owoI ^ Trace - Sniper all different examples of the same thing, the Mutant Revisited example above which links to the 2:39 mark in the song, is exactly what i've been trying for.
