    easy peeps.. hope all is good

    just a quick question.. i've been sampling some fat beats straight from vinyl, and then converting them into REX files.. however i seem to lose the punch/snap once converted and imported into Reason/Record...

    I appreciate that breaks cut on vinyl are eq'd differently, and even after spending a lot of time eqing/compressing etc, i just cant get it sounding right..

    any ideas or techniques that you know of that could help us out?

    cheers

    If you are going straight from the source I wouldn't compress it at all, just Rex it.
