    Sounds really good man.
    I've a curiosity: when you do multi dynamic samples like these how do you process the different "velocity"? I mean, when I compress the "cracked" snare hits, the same compressor settings are not good for the soft hits because the threshold for example should be different of course and moreover the compressor act in a different way...and also if I'm able to compress a soft hit, I probably get a sample that doesn't sound "glued" with the hard and crack samples..

    Isn't that what a compressor is supposed to do?
    act differently to hard and soft hits?
    I normally set the threshold based on the harder hits... These samples have already been compressed a fair bit, but I tried not to go too mental.

    Oh, I forgot to mention.
    The gap at the beginning of the room mics is supposed to be there. it's the rooms natural pre-delay.

    Of course, but if the soft hit don't reach the threshold that works for a cracked hit, the soft hit is not processed at all.
    If the samples are sligthly processed it can be a good thing but if you wanna create a very processed samples it can be a problem

    That depends on the sort of compressor you're using.
    That sounds more like a limiters behavior as opposed to a compressor; it will still be pulled up if it's below the threshold, but it depends if you're using the compressor as a dynamic control, or as a tone shaping tool, which I guess is what you're talking about .
    Either way...
    If I WAS going to do it that way,
    I'd probably process setting the threshold for each dynamic layer!
