listen to the paramore mix for instance, the snare is not even close to the original and honestly if paramore sounded like that i wouldn't listen to them
The "vintage" ones always make me smile

Steven Slate didn't model Paramore nor did he make the Paramore cover.. The Paramore cover was produced by one of our many talented customers, and while it may not be exactly like the original, it sounds great.

If you want to hear how Steven Slate's official models sound, then check them out.. The Metallica and Steely Dan models are so close its crazy...

But I agree, before I worked for Yellow Matter I heard a demo that used Steven Slate drums and it wasn't a modeled kit, it was just a really amazing sounding drumkit that forced me to purchase SSD the next day! The modeled kits are great when you are going for that sound, but besides them, there are a lot of great drum sounds.

Where do you get samples to blend in behind real drum tracks? Do you just sample the drums on every session (or just good sessions) and save them up, or do you buy sample libraries or collections?

While we're on the topic, do you guys have any special tricks or techniques you use when blending samples in? Eq/Mult/Comp tricks? (I know it's depends on the sound, I mean general things you do)

And finally...does anyone want to donate some rock/metal drum samples to a worthy cause...

The only time I've used drum samples was an experiment with an e-drum kit that didn't work - too much latency. Other than that I use good mics on a drum kit and work to get them sounding good. If you're doing rock or metal you should use drums, not samples. And a real drummer.

"Nirvana" drum kit? Really? Why am I skeptical?

There is a free Kick and Snare download for metal drum sounds here Drum Samples for Metal | Invictus Audio | Metal Drum Samples . As For some tips for mixing and getting the drums to punch out more I will send out the meat parts to a stereo bus(Kick snare and toms) and throw on a comp - Basically a slow attack say around 30 or 50 ms and fast release . Just bring down the threshold so it sound a bit mroe punchy - careful you dont do it too much or it will sound too compressed . Then throw the cymbals , and rooms into a separate Drums Bus -I usually don't compress that Bus as I have it already dialed in on their channels . Remeber you don't have to overcompress to get a good sound either .

If you're interested, I just put online a 15 snare samples library recorded using high end gear (Vintech, Lavry...). They sound great, no post-processing involved, so you can do what you want mixing them. There is one free snare for you to judge, but the total collection is $30 only (made it really affordable for everyone).

Here is the link :

I know everyone is trying to find some good metal drums. I recently recorded some drums for a YouTube demonstration but along with the session I ask the drummer to do single hits of each drum and of the cymbals. Each drum is printed with and without the room mics. To get the free samples hit the youtube link and look in the description.

Keep making awesome music guys =)
