since i started writing my own dnb (only about a year) I've always produced the beats using either a drum machine or single hit drum samples. I was just wondering whether this is a common method to write drum patterns with drum n bass, or whether most producers these days mainly only cut up and play around with 1 or 2 bar samples. I'm thinking maybe my method may not be the best if im gonna create some really fat sounding beats, as the actual sounds of each drum often don't sound too good. Is this method ok if i do enough filtering/ compression on each of the drum sounds? thanks in advance.
