How's it going guys. Following a spark of inspiration, I've recently become an aspiring electronic music programmer. I've got my hands on a copy of Pro Tools 8, and Native Instrument's Komplete 7 softsynth bundle. I've been having quite a bit of fun with the synthesizers and such, but I've run into a problem that I'm hoping to find some help with.


Using the Battery 3 plug-in, I've been trying to get the snare to hit that "psht" sound common in the genre of electronic music that I enjoy and intend to take queues from, but I just can't seem to figure it out. I've tried layering different samples (there're quite a few that come with the Battery 3 library), played around with the tune, envelope, compressor, EQ settings, etc. etc. No matter what, either the sound is "too acoustic" or just ends up being too filtered and clipped.


I'm a noob at this and I'm aware that I really just don't know what I'm doing. Please, if you have any suggestions, pointers or advice, I would appreciate anything that might send me in the right direction.


Here are youtube links for a few examples of the sound I'm talking about.

Hi, I'm not an electronic music guy but to get that snare sound would most likely be to pick the snare patch you like, eq it the way you like, then compress it the way you want then, put a long Gate on it then adjust the gate parameters to the length you need, ? But this is coming from an Analog perspective I could be Whack!
