I know there has probably been lot of threads like this. But I just want recommendations on artists or techniques to find some dirty snares. I want Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1 sounding snares. And possibly tambourine hits, and general percussion. Can anyone help?

Not to mention you might have to EQ and stack snares on top of one another to get what you want

i have been layering the snares and i've been quite successful. see, i use fruity loops, but i don't actually know how to use the effects on it. i've only been using it for a few days.

grab a now-again funk compilation and mess with things like white noise and sine waves if you want to dirty up a clean sound....but EQ is more hlepful than anything. layering works, but the eq can help clean it up or dirty it.

even though what pete did was very basic....the way he explains things on it makes you want to get up and do something with your life. truly a good motivating clip.

i pull alot of drums and percussion from old drummachines. stacking them on each other is a great tip. claps can be used as snares too if you shorten them and put them under a snare with a little bit less volume. i do that alot. it gets it more punchy. hi-hats is a bitch though. kicks too. i use alot of eq and shit on the kicks.

click on the sound that you want to use, in the top right of the box that pops up there is a -- that you can change to a number. Change it to whatever number you want then its like plugging that into an fx box. Click the fx box by where you do your sequencing. For actual techniques in using their equalizers search for Beatchemist. There is an article on the board from an old member that teaches you the basics.

all i can say is. go out in the world and listen.
go dig, figure out what style artists you like.
pretend internet doesn't exist.
