So, I was wondering. Blending snares. I know how I do it. How do you do it? Here's how I do it: Real snare track: duplicate it a few times and just drumagog over the duplicated track until it gets all the hits (need to do some gain automating and such here to get it right usually) then print each one to track. from there I'll take all the snare samples and pitch them to all be the same pitch as one another (I just do it by ear until it sounds right? probably doing it wrong, then print them into one track with my mega sample (lets not forget to make sure all the transients line up here before printing!) Also before printing this mega track you can do small things such as hp/lp certain samples and viola! MEGA SNARE! Midi snare track: SAME thing, EXCEPT! I'll duplicate the midi track for the snare and set each to trigger via superior/slate/drumagog then print each to track, then print those to mega track. both ways I end up with only 1 snare track as I hate trying to mix a jillion snare tracks at once and my computer hates me when I do. NOW FOAR MY QUESTIONS! (whichever you answer number plz =P ) 1. do you do anything different, if so how? 2. how do you go about fixing all those ugly ugly smeared transients before bouncing to mega sample? 3. how are you guys going about pitching your snares? 4. for those of you using the samples from the alesis, ala sneap/adam d/colin (you know, that cool fat city snare sample and those others) how are you placing them in? I just made a .gog out of the singular sample and trigger it, but I can never get it to blend tastefully..
