Just wanted to give some advice on making snares sound better and more full (probably more for beginners) and might have been a really obvious thing for most people but I only figured this out last night after many years of producing. Getting my drum to sound how I want them has always been a problem for me... trying to bridge that gap between electronic and live sound. I tought it would be nice to share things as I learn them so that somebody else can also hopefully benfit from my lessons along the circuit. This is just a little tip to get the snares sounding a little more "full" by layering. The obvious thing to do is to pick out a high (clap) a mid and a lower snare layer them on top of each other. Now the trick is to set them all slightly off from each other rather than have them all hitting at the same time if you get my drift. have your low snare just before where you want the snare to drop.. talking like milliseconds (it makes a difference and leave it as it is... the mid snare you want on the drop point and use a little volume (on logic apple key & A) automation to take out some of the volume of the hit/attack at the start and then layer the high snare/clap just a bit in front of the mid snare again milliseconds but it makes a difference and automate the attack again so it's not quite as harsh or noticeable. Hopefully if it's done right you will find that your snares sound a lot more full and real/crisp rather than muddy and will lose a bit of that typical electronic sound. Probably more useful in liquid type production rather than jump up/neuro. I know you can buy real drum samples and sample from live drums but I just feel that this way gives you more control over the sound. Hope this helps someone anyway and feel free to add any more tips about getting those snare drums sounding good and professional!
