Hi, quick question.

Im using battery 3, and I generally use the samples provided with the vst, do you download samples or find that whatever vst (or built in) you have, have the sample you need?

Thanks

Why should it be "or"? No stock library does everything and a new set is cheaper than a new VST.

Please, for the love of Pete Rock, don't use stock samples!

With samplers comes a great freedom not offered by any other piece of gear in the universe, and with stock samples comes the death of that freedom.

you could look around for decent drum libraries (there are plenty).

you could bite your own samples. you could honor the tradition and chop up "impeach the president" or "amen, brother" and use hits from that.

there are *so* many interesting things to do.

the stock samples are for demo'ing the product or for spoiled kids who got Battery 3 from their parents who are gonna use it once, for 15 minutes, then never look at it again.

Anyway, you know what to do.

Wave Alchemy. That's 50% of the battle. The other 50% is learning how those effects for each individual sample work. The saturator, EQ, and envelope are your best friends, and along with good samples, like those from WA, the ONLY thing you need for incredible EDM/modern drum sounds.

Why?

Unless I'm missing something...


Perhaps you have a 64 bit computer & DAW... but you don't need 64 bit samples to match that.

24 bit samples are stoooopid high quality, and pretty much the current standard for high-end sample packs.

Yeah WaveAlchemy for sure and dont forget about GoldBaby. Just the free content alone from those two websites has kept me busy for weeks. Cant go wrong with either brand.
