    The picolo off the d4 is my favorite so far i feel it just gives any snare more attack if i put it low in the mix, no wonder andy used to use it so much hahah

    And my post wasn't a bag on Slate, it was to bag on all the generic sound alikes. I don't think there has ever been a period in music history as boring as what we are going through now. Grab same samples, amp modelers, bass, 0-1-1-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1 riffs, rinse repeat. :puke:

    For example:









    AND ALL OF THEM WERE RECORDED BY DIFFERENT DUDES. WTF.

    + a bazillion gajillion. It's honestly like music fans right now WANT to know whats coming in a song before it's even started. Hundreds of bands that all look and sound EXACTLY the same and it honestly shows no sign of stopping.

    Also, lyric video's are the gayest fad since the overuse of autotune. I just don't understand the appeal of this at all. It's not like any of these vocalists are fucking poets in the first place, and this is just drawing attention to how absolutely crap their lyrics are!

    Ultimately though it's not only the samples that are going to make something Sturgiscore, there are a million other elements in the mix that are going to decide that, not to mention the music.

    Get more people to buy yours and Lasse's samples and the problem goes away, albeit partially.

    I think the appeal is they look cool (sometimes) and are way cheaper than making a music video

    Why don't more "engineers" record and use their own unique samples?

    probably because they're all talentless hacks like myself who can't come up with a usable sample if our lives depended on it :mad:

    That's somewhat freaky...............and sad..............and "ghey"

    It's not like it's even that great a sound to be trying to imitate in the first place.

    Makes you wonder if it was possible back in the day for every wannabee band to sound exactly like the Beatles would they have, seems most tried to, nowadays it's possible to sound super-generic so I guess it's just par for course.

    Hmmm, so much hatred, that opening this thread makes plants wither, children cry, cats puke, etc etc.
    Come on, people. Bad mixing engineer will never get a pro sounding record even using slate k10, catharsis pres5, lepou plugins, zombass etc. It WILL make his life easier but it still won't sound kickass.
    Shit will dry up and fall off. True talents will remain. There's no need to remind ourselves that making our own sample libraries and using real amps is more creative, original and professional.

    Speaking of kick10 - I love it. Just don't turn the "oh" off or it will get some nasty rattling as if it's skins are too loose. So don't turn oh off and use envelop shaping to make it shorter and faster. It will sound glorious in many rock/metal mixes.

    I've never had that much luck with the top end on kick ten, just always feels too plasticy for me and doesn't have enough of an airy splat like some other kicks, the low end is fine but I've never liked it that much until it was mixed with something else.

    I don't know if I've actually ever used Kick 10 in a mix but I know it's not the worst kick sample in the package.

    I probably use kick 6 or something. I honestly don't know which because after I find a sample that doesn't suck I just move on, I don't memorize it.

    BTW, I asked Slate about Kick 10 last week.

    I'm gonna have to come in and call bullshit on that! I did the Bury Tomorrow record and although you may feel that about the music there's no slate samples whatsoever in there, no POD, no Axe, I even mixed it on an aws 900+ and CJ mastered it.

    I actually think it's the only song that sounds completely different from all the rest you posted (production wise) looool :p
