    im still a begginer at layering to be honest.
    but if your layering multiple breaks make sure u quantize them otherwise it sounds like mess, and not in the good way either

    ez mate, layering can be done on differernt elements within a tune - synths, beats for example, say a reece bass sound can be composed of multiple layers (normally a lot of people split the main sound into 3 layers and process each differently - low / mid / hi) to get some more texture in there.

    beats is all about layering especially nowadays - so basic layers: kick, snare (note a lot of people use more than 1 of each kick and snare as with DnB 1 is normally not enough to get that punch), hihats or shuffles of some sort, various high passed breaks, ofcourse getting them all to fit as one is the tricky part! - but that comes with practice, check Zeal's drum tutorial to start off with! ;)
