Hello all;
I have a fairly simple question, though am having trouble finding the answer. So, I thought I'd ask on a forum.

I hear this snare a lot in Trap. What Drum Machine creates this snare?

Here is a song that has it. (mind not the song, if its your vibe or if it aint is not relative to the question.) It appears first in the initial snare roll and can be heard throughout.

Info on the origins of this snare will be appreciated.

You will most likely get 10 answers from 10 programmers all suggesting a different snare.

Being said, Its sounds like a detuned common snare with a clap.
If you like it that much, simply sample it. That is the beauty of samplers. :)

In this track it sounds like a sidestick "detuned" with the ride cymbal on top of it. Its definitely a layer of a few things together. Buy an 808 and you will be really happy.
I used to own one, they are really easy to work with. They are the big craze now.
Check out Roger Linn's stuff. Roger is the man for drum machines.

I have it...I even tried converting to Mp3 to upload here but the quality once converted sounds like ass (as Kurt so eloquently puts it.)

I think it has to do with the fact it is a one-shot sample and so much audio quality is lost from the original wav file when the conversion to Mp3 takes place.

But just so the OP is aware, I have what sounds like that particular snare, both dry and with reverb to taste as heard above.
