    KJ Sawka is a quality drummer and no doubt this will be a quality pack.
    Id take a few hits from it but i wouldnt use any loops.

    What I've generally read is that the single kicks aren't anything to shout about but you can just cut the others from loops in the pack.

    I think that's what I'll do.

    The kicks are probably the same as the ones in the loops but with an hi hat or splash over the top.

    mate use google..

    there are LOADS of drum samples on the net. some rele good drum ones too. just have to keep an eye out.
    Mistabishi was saying he used the sound of some bloke kicking a football as a kick in one of his tracks. then just probs beefed it up with some compression and eq

    You're right. I do use google but I'm fairly new to production so I just wanted a decent set of samples that I could just start rolling with and not worry about them being right.

    Yes, I know it's important to learn how to put compression on drums etc but I just wanted to dive in, which in retrospect was probably a bad idea.

    Anyways, got the samples, they're all good.

    yeh mate.. learn the hard way. get a load of drum hits and make them sound as amazing as you can.
    thing to remember is to layer them..
    when ever i produce anything i normally have about 10-12 tracks just for drums.
    i use about 4 for break layering.. then i double up on the snares, kicks. then i use the other tracks fro shakers, hh's and anything else.
    but this is just my working style...
    play about mate :)

    Cool, what synths are you using? Native instruments? Do you use ultrabeat or just audio samples?

    I generally use audio for drums though I've been putting it in ultrabeat and drawing the beats in on the pino roll. Works quite nicely.

    Less is more jesus, there is a big thread on this

    use max 3 hits at once. And even then, EQ them seperate.
