Looking for a specific 808

I have a bunch of dirty south kits and Lex luger kits, but none of the 808s sound like this... no matter how much mixing I do...



Therefore, I've come to the conclusion that it's the 808 sample itself that sounds amazing to begin with, then he touches it up with mixing. Where can I find this kind of growling 808?

Take a luger 808, put an eq on it, eq the tone that's in the 80 - 120hz range up until its pretty loud. Record a hit of the 808, save it, use.

Hmm.. so I boosted the hell out of the higher frequencies of my 808... got it sounding dope. Then I put the compressor on it and it doesn't sound the way I want it to. :/ I have to compress it so IDK what I should do?

Maybe I'll try a multiband compressor.

EDIT: Hmm... with the multiband compressor if I hit some notes the db meter will go off the charts... I guess I can get away with light compression just to level out the db

why do you HAVE to compress it?

2 reasons.

1) I remember Timbo or some big shot producer saying to get those drums hitting hard you compress, compress, and then compress.

2) (Probably the more important reason) is when I push certain notes the volume is way too loud, and others not so much. Light compression seems to keep everything under control.

EDIT: Heyy you know what.. Instead of taking Lex Luger's 808s... I decided to go through my TR808 kit and I eq'd.. overdrived.. little bit of compression... and dayumn son! Where'd you find this??? This sh*t sounds CLEAN AS F*CK. Only problem is the longest TR808 bass drum I have isn't that long. I need to go and find a long sample and then do what I just did.
