Yeah that totally makes sense. First-please know that I'm not knocking the tutorial in any way...I think it's great! I've learned a ton, and I really appreciate your style of teaching. I actually ended up getting the Vengeance Multiband Sidechain, Kick 2, and I finally just paid for the old Fabfilter demos that I've had forever....and Serum and Sylenth. That Multiband sidechain is freaking awesome, and Kick 2 is blowing my mind and how qucik and easy it is. Luckily I already have Komplete. I've been enjoying Cubase 9s new Sampler track instead of the Vengeance sampler.
The only effect I haven't really been able to recreate very well is that nasty v-verb delay effect on the tom. I set up an 1/8th note delay on a fx channel and dirtied it up with izotope vinyl and then did a gate to tighten up the sound. It's not the same but gets the same effect.
I'm taking it real slow through this tutorial, so I'm only now through the percussion video. For some reason, my downloads of the resources didn't contain the Tom-actually the .wav file is there, but it is 0 kbs. I ended up using another Kick 2 pitched higher for the tom.
I'm using a lot of my own samples, but I'd really appreciate knowing exactly which sample packs you are using. In the video, you kind of scanned through your sample packs and you said you thought they might be in one of a few different places, but you didn't specify. Also, on the crashes and a few other elements, the samples were already loaded on to your project. Can you tell us which sample packs they came from (especially if there can be found here at Sonic Academy).
One thing I'm curious about since you are just using samples that you had already pre-selected: Did you make a conscious decision around tuning the samples to the track? Like with the cymbals and hats, etc?
Thanks again for this tutorial. I'm loving it! Greetings to SA. I specialize in traditional Zimbabwean music and lived there for many years. I have many friends from Zim who are now in Cape Town.
