253 - 909 snare tip        

From: Tom Baker
Email: bagheadz@i12.com
Date: 31-Dec-03


when programming 909 snare patterns, try to using two tracks , on with a short decay and another which lets a bit of the white noise through. the ones on every 2 and 4 should definately be `noisy'.

Filters dont work to great for the 909 snare, its either there or its not, the decay change is a much more honest way of getting people to dance.

Filtering people should know that any funky filtering applied to a 909 snare creates frequency artifacts which ruin the mix and smash up the rythym. A hi-pass filter works okay for me, perhaps with subtle eq to warm the top end.

happy new year to all those `crack' users making music out there.
