He guys I'm a rooky speaking of this forum, but I have to admit that it is very informativ, PROPS!!!I've been surching for a forum like this a long time, and now I've found it, and there are huge amounts of questions to be asked to u guys! Well, as a Rap Music producer, I always try to keep drumloops fat! When making drums on my SP or Akai MPC, I usually use samples on Funk records. Then, after I made the sequenze, I record the Sequence onto my Harddisk recorder (1 Track)...which means that the drum sequence is now on my Harddiscrecorder. Well, my question is pretty simple: I just want to know if it'd be bettere to record all the drum elements sepparately (hihat, bassdrum, snare) on different tracks or to keep it as a whole...where do I get the best result when it comes to a compressor? Thx for helping me, I appreciate... Cheers Polemikk, Zurich PS: Are there other effects who could help to make drums sound fat?
