    If by cut you mean turn off the base the instant the kick hits for the duration of the kick, then yea I do that. Except I try to make the bass waves profile look like the complement of kick waves, that way if you add them together (like the mixdown does) they could add up to a continous wave of full amplitude. I need to read a book about this shit or something, but if you listen to the track "schizophrenia" in my soundclick, the kicks and snares were cut using this technique and it sounds pretty crisp.

    I believe by cutting frequencies he's referring to EQ'ing. You cut frequencies in order to eliminate certain parts in the loop/sample.

    ok, but to remove a rock and roll snare you gotta cut like 8 bands out and the end product sounds shitty

    Yeah you can do that.

    Funny though I hear the best results are obtained by the layers being slightly offset.

    Its pretty easy with an mpc. I can turn a sample from any well known song into something completely different using the mpc. It depends on your mixing abilities too. Its easy for somebody to take a hot sample and ruin it with shitty drums.

    yes.

    But NOT every sample is going to be PERFECTLY on beat, because live bands didnt use quantized drums.

    So sometimes, the snare will be a tenth of a hundreth to the right, instead of perfectly in place.

    If that happens, Just add some minor delay/reverb to the snare.

    There's a few ways around it.

    word

    aight next topic

    downsampling snares, what sample rate/ bit rate ranges are good to use? Also, when you save a downsampled snare as a 44100hz 16bit wave, it totally fucks up the sound. If you save it as a 96000hz 16 bit it keeps its grit. You guys know what I'm talkin about?
