254 - Alesis SR16 tip        

From: Paul Clothier

I use an SR16 for snares, hats, crashes, claps and percussion sounds. The snares can sound a little crappy and bloated for techno. What I do is assign them to Group 1, and assign the kick to Group 1 with its volume set to zero. I program the snare part, copy the loop to another track and transpose it to make the kick sound (silently). Then I shift the kick forward by 20 ticks (using an MC500 with 96ppqn), thereby gating the snare. This makes it sound so much punchier, coupled with a little high cut on the mixer to reduce cheesiness. Try it!
