    Real simple question:
    what part of the drum is (are) the part that goes on with the kick and snare (in usual drum and bass beats)? I'm talking about the clickclack back and forth noise. Is it just two different closed high hat noises?

    umm.....about 6 o'clock???

    Seriously dude "clickclack"??? In a drum loop you have your kicks and snares, then there can be all sorts of stuff, open and closed hats, rides, rimshots, bongo's, tambourines, shakers, crashes, toms, maraccas etc etc etc etc etc etc.....

    lol, I already know that there are MANY elements to an interesting beat, but for the life of me I can't figure out just by sound what the sound is made up of.
    example:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGZRDP9kPIk&feature=feedlik

    Is it two high hats? or is it usually one, but pitched down every other hit......There are thousands of high hat samples......is it just trial and error to find two that are clean samples, or is there a general rule of thumb to this.

    also...are these (if they are highhats) usually layered?

    by this point in the thread your questions have already been answered!!

    you can typically use "breaks" to create the flow or dnb element of alot of tunes. the shuffle element can be easily put in your tunes by cutting up loops and breaks, further than that if you cant tell the difference between a hi hat or a percussion then there is something wrong with your hearing!

    Thanks all! I wasn't sure how people went about making drums, they are already sounding much better.

    I actually use a soft snare for that back and forth stuff your talking about. There so many ways of making a DnB beat, probably one of the few music genres where you can go mental with hats n shitzzle
