    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to logikz again.

    u are doing the typical things, saturation/OD, compression with slow attack, parallel comp, EQ boots in the appropriate places (eg. ~200Hz and another couple at the higher splash freqs of the snare)? Thats all I really do and it usually turns out nice. Also layer snares thats pretty key. have good samples: http://www.freesound.org/people/crispydinner/
    then if your snare is hitting at the same time as the kick make sure they are EQed together so they are not fighting but working together.

    i dont really know any other tips, but i would be glad if ppl who know more would share!

    transient shaping, compression, saturation + a lil overdrive, some limiting and your done.

    layering and eqing obviously, too.

    but above all, transient shaping!

    is izotope superior to a std compressor? do yo know if there are dedicated "transient shaper" plugs that are distinct from compressors?

    all good plugs but some of them are but a wheel and two buttons, their effect very audible but oddly and discomfortingly invisible.
