    So I've been trying to make a snare roll that drops in pitch like in this tune at 0.19



    And what I tried to do was to use logics vocal transformer and just automate the pitch drop on my snare but it doesn't sound very well. It just gets real messy and distorted. I also tried with the pitch shifter plugin but I just got the same result. Maybe I'm doing it right but I just need the right sample, tho I've tried tons of different snares... ^^

    Its quite a common fill in dnb so I'd figure at least some one of u guys must have done this once for sure. Help me out, Im all out of ideas :p

    Sampler set to 1/16

    Drop in snare and arrange the notes in a descending order so the last 16th note is your main snare

    Adjust velocity in an ascending order, automate the volume a bit too

    easy!
