    Hey there peepz,

    So in a fairly amount of tracks im hearing this chopped(?) snare, any of you know how to create them? is it just an envelope thing? Hear an example of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVUSx5uVHoM

    thanks!

    The snare just has a little riser thing in front of it.
    When your snare is done, bounce it, reverse it and chuck it infront of the other, 'normal' snare.

    Do some fiddling, because when you leave the initial hit in the reversed snare it will sound weird. So play a bit with the attack of the reversed snare (well, reversed it will be the tail), or maybe cut a bit of so you only have the tail left and put that one infront of the snare.

    Just try around abit with that, but I think thats the basic thing for that sound

    copy snare, reverse, cut off the very end, gives attack and you get this winding up feel

    For me that short bit before the snare sounds like a open hat. Just play with the envelopes and reverse the stuff. :)
