Similar to a Chris Adler snare sound??

Postby guitardom » Tue Jan 08, 2013 4:29 am

starting an album soon with a band that is a bit heavier than what i normally work with. i deal with a lot of rock/metal bands but these guys are closer to death metal. was listening to their rough demo's and he has a very similar snare sound to lamb of god. are there any expansions with a similar snare sound? he uses a 5.5" x 12" mapex. here is a vid that represents the snare well.


i have sample banks and such with some that are close, but it is SO much easier to just use bfd formatted kits and have all the velocity layers and such rather than dealing with sample replacing and such with a snare.

i have all of the platinum sample packs, but even with the Barressi set i cant seem to find anything close enough. any ideas??

man I have been looking for the same thing. I was wondering about the Modern Drummer Snare pack? Listen to the isolated drum tracks from the LOG Wrath album, man that snare sounds good.

I've tried layering and different EQ and effects, but still haven't got it 100%

Have the modern drummer snare pack and nothing really in there. The best I got was a pretty big fat snare from evil drums layered with a deftones snare from Slate. It actually sounds really good. Created velocity layers and such from the slate and made a full bfd 2 kit piece out of it.

Here is the snip I sent the band after putting it together to see if they liked it. its not mixed, meant to show off the drums and vocals are up there a bit as well.
