This amen has a very signature destructive compression push in the kick that follows it all the way through. Dub-One had written he personally adds overdrive to it in post/chains, that is the slight difference you’ll hear between the two running examples.
Sounds like it could have come from Ja know ya big - Dillinja, lot’s of people might not know they have this signature break labeled ‘fallen amen’ due to a mislabeling by a few people, but there’s something else in it that I haven’t heard used outside Sci Wax.
Ive been watching this thread for a few days now,i can hear that its heavily processed i think ur man who said its a clean amen would want to get himself a new set of ears /> and btw its a beastly sounding amen,thanks for sharing it!Now theres a problem with your request in so far as,it seems to me like its so heavily processed that searching the source sample might be redundant.Im not sure if you have any hardware or not,do you?
but the Amen wav in your zip is the CD remaster, so is actually quite heavily touched up.
the one from the original release is in true stereo (as opposed to dual mono) for starters…
the pressing and stylus seem to make a fair bit ofdifference too.
imo the source is the key, you can balance a break with eq (and compression if you like, i usually prefer to leave it!)
but the tone mainly comes from the source.
and sampling ready processed breaks is all fair game and par for course imo, plenty of great artists have done it. omni trio n marvellous caine spring to mind and i wouldn’t be surprised if there is a common parent amen to those 2 tracks.
Completely agree with everything you said.My point in saying the source material maybe redundant is that its a heavily processed amen and finding the source material would be like finding a needle in a haystack.Your best bet is to ask him personally.If you cant find the source material you can make your own equally as good sounding amen albeit not the exact one your looking for.But maybe you already know how and are just specifically looking for this one (ive been there)
yeah that’s very true, i was mainly responding to 101010 & hotelsinus tbh.
OP seems to have lost interest (or faith!) anyway.
there’s just something about breakbeat genealogy that gets my inner trainspotter all excited haha.
here’s my favourite sources, one from Zero G and one from Ultimate Breaks.
i don’t think they’re processed, at least they need a fair bit of work to fit into a tune, but they’re quite detailed and don’t have any nasty frequencies to fight so take EQ better than any other versions I have.
I know id lose faith anyways,i cannot believe they think its just the original amen with a bit of compression and eq.If thats the case id love for them to post the amens they got to sound like this.Thatd b good. />
