I am a long time musician but new to electronic and specifically Renoise.
I hope this question isn't too annoying as I know many people ask 'how can I sound like this?', but my question is more specific so hopefully it's answerable.
If you listen to that piece, I am really interested in the way they have created this beat, especially starting at the 40 second mark or so.
It kind of reminds me of marching band snare solos. The velocity is very well managed here from what I can hear. A few sixteenths of louder snares, then a few of softer. Then some different snare sounds thrown in here and there. The kick is placed on off-beats too.
I am guessing these are shorter snare samples rather than a sampled amen break or something. Maybe they are even using a drum kit to achieve that human feeling?
Also, the snare and kick sounds themselves are interesting. I am guessing they are made up of some layered sounds? Am I off?
I am going to try to reconstruct this by ear as an experiment, so any advice would be great.
