Quite interesting to see the way these manufacturers set up the effects for their drum machines.
Good to take a look at and try to recreate in renoise.
Real drum recordings ( chopped breakbeat, single hits ) sound so much better than drum machine sounds only in my opinion.
I will admit, breakbeat samples do sound much fatter when layered with synthetic drum sounds. A mix of both is good.
Synthesized snares never sound that good, unless they are layered with samples from a real snare.
Even physical modelling snares dont come close. They are not expressive enough. Too static and mechanical.
Think of all the variables going on inside a real snare ( diameter, depth, skin material, material of body, tuning, hardness/softness of hit, type of mallet, angle of strike, springs in snare etc..). On a real snare every time its hit its a slightly different sound. So much variation ( same with all drums ). Real drums and therefore samples of real drums stilll much better than synthetic drums, maybe always will be ( but synthetic drums layered underneath do add fatness, it has to be said ). Even heavy metal and rock drummers use synthetic drum machine sounds layered with their drums ( with the use of triggers ).
Playing drums or pads of drum machines in real time is more fun to watch too.
A lot of trap music really is annoying with all those synthetic hihats.
Sounds like its designed to be a loud annoying ringtone.
Plus the MC's are wack these days, not saying anything and cant rhyme.
Its all 'ten crack commandents' recycled over and over.
I have to admit I do like the mix of FM hats and real hihats in a tune tho.
