    Hi, I am trying to explore some of the different drums sounds in the 2K. There are a lot of great sounding drums. jazz trio and jazz quartet sound great except they have this odd volume swell going on. kit:accustic doesn't do that. Why would they create a preset with a volume swell...on drums no less. can it be flattened out?

    I dunno exactly about the 2000 but I worked on the 2500 and many other E-mu boxed over the past 3 years or so. What you're describing could simply be a residual "edit" of that part's amplitude envelope. IOW, perhaps you had adjusted the attack on the drum part, changed patches and _that_ adjustment makes the drums "swell".

    Do you maybe have a compressor patched to the outputs? That would make the drums appear to swell? Can you post an example of what you're doing?

    no compressor in the line.

    For some reason it is just the "real" ish sounding patches. I don't get it! I went through them again today looking for a way to get rid of the swell.

    One thing I have to do is review in stereo and see if it isn't just a stereo chorus or something like that fattening up the sound.

    also I'm going to do a full reset on the the unit and see if that doesn't fix it. I didn't do anything in the first place so...

    I'll post an example post haste, as if I can figure out how to do that!!!

    Thanks very much
