So i just got Slate Trigger and i've never used any other samples on my drum tracks other than the SD Avatar kick.
Here's a short snippet of my drum mix using samples from the Trigger library and Superior Drummer.
What do you think? What would you do different? How could it be punchier?
Any feedback would be great!
Not bad at all! I would like to hear it in a mix however, as that kick drum might get lost in the mix a bit. I remember mixing drums on an album years ago, and they sounded amazing by themselves, but when I brought in the tracks of the rest of the band, the snare drum completely disappeared, no matter how loud I had it. So i needed to really mess with the frequencies of the snare drum to get it to pop out in the mix.
All in all you're in a good place to start.
