    I use c4 on toms, low mid scoop and low shelf boost on kick and a low mid boost on snare.

    of course comp and other cool shit with it.

    Slate Snare, Dan Snare & Snare 12 are all winners. Kick 15 is a staple for me. Don't like any of the toms. Qik toms if I have no time to get SD2.0 fired up.

    a cut at 150-180 and a cut at 500-800 than low shelf boost and high pass filter thats it. i dont compress it cuz i suck at compressing :/

    i think if you use kick 15 you should get a cracky snare or dont know. btw how do you compress and eq your kicks and snares? i always found out that my snare sounds shit and weak lol

    I litterally move the knobs on the comp until I'm satisfied, it's never the same. Whatever fits the drummer, band, genre and mix

    Love the slate snare, kick 10, green kick, Tommy snare, 12 obviously but it's been overused now. I find they don't take too kindly to processing sometimes. I usually have to carve a whole bunch out of 100-450 on kick 10, touch of comp 30ms attack 4:1. When using the toms I go through the multis of the toms I've sampled and run them through a tuner to approximate the tuning and then match the toms to that with the pitch shift in drumagog and then tweak by ear to match them as closely as possible as I only ever sample reinforce toms (if even needed) unless they're completely shithouse. I also tend to notch out those annoying overtones and ringing notes from the toms. Spectrum analyzer can help here and then carve out by ear narrowing the q until just the offending freqs are gone.

    I blend at least 3 slate samples for each drum every time I use them. I actually don't like most of them on their own.

    nope!
    i do blends too, i think kick15 works great with kick5 and if someone wants more slapkick blend blackkick or pantykick in it and youve got an amazing metal kick
