    Sounds like most recent electronic snares do:

    1. Layer a clap, synth snare (usually 909 or similar), and a boosted tom or 808 or whatever sample between 170-250Hz (wherever the fundamental is)
    2. Compress
    3. Compress
    4. ????
    5. Compress
    6. Profit






    Not to sound like a dick, but how do people really ask this question anymore? Like these snares in dance music are one of the most dominating parts of the mix, you can hear the entire thing so damn clearly and then all you have to do is listen. It's the same thing as a painting, you can look at it and see exactly how it was done, the question, then, is can you do it? /rant

    ^ what he said!

    Also for dnb I think the punch should lie around 200-240 to hit the spot imo... Altho its not a rule, but most of the time it seams to be working (atleast for me!)

    /\ Word, the big reason a tom will work better than just a sine wave is that drums have a natural drop in pitch throughout the envelope as the energy from the initial strike dissipates, so the resonating of the head and the drum slows down proportionally.
