When you program drums in dnb, do you tend to snap everything to the grid or give some parts a looser feel - like shakers and hats? I'm coming from a house/dubstep background where I'm used to having a bit more room for applying swing to some parts.
for me it depends on the break. if its your standard: kick, snare, kick snare
then i'll keep everything straight. i like the rolling feel.
for other breaks, maybe.
personally i think it gives the drums a looser feel ala Alix Perez when he used to make liquid,
im not a big fan of that really laid back sound, and so 95% of the time I'll keep everything square
i dont really notice swing at DnB tempos though so i dont bother using it
For me it doesn't matter if it's the main kicks and snares. Now with the loops and hats, ghosts etc, I think you should keep it within the same frame of however you laid the main kicks and snares so it doesn't get too crazy.
