Weak Electronic Drum Samples?
Can anyone recommend some good resources for understanding how Amplitude and dBs work in relation to recording/mixing? I am diving into the world of electronic music, and creating my own drum samples right now. When layering the kick and snare for example, I am taking out what I dont need with EQ and slightly boosting what I do need to each track. I am being sure to keep each track's signal as hot as possible without clipping, and then resample it all into another track (also just below clipping). However, it seems like it never hits as hard as I would like it to, and is just slightly too quiet. Any ideas?
