Been playing with DrumReaplacer in Reaper and am looking for some bright & punchy kick/snare/tom samples to replace my real drum hits with. Looking for a "modern sound" with "clicky/fake" sounding drums for blast beats/fills/double kick style drumming. Any ideas?

you could just record your own hits, that will be the most natural I think.

Otherwise there are lots of clicky modern samples for download on the andy sneap forum.

Yeah I did try recording my own samples but they didn't seem much better than just using the non-replaced drums.

I searched a bit on the andy sneap forum, but mostly came across dead links or samples that cost money. Any specific links you can think of?

havent been on there in a while actually. Why are your own sampling efforts failing?

just record the parts seperatly, EQ and compress them. If you want more click in the bassdrum what I do is dampen it to hell, give it a smiley face EQ :P (less mids, more high and low, maybe a sublayer on top if the dampening is killing the "oomph" A nice DIY trick also is to tape a coin on the bassdrumskin (where the beater hits it) also dont forget to use an expander or well-adjusted gate on the toms, to stop the sympathetic ring, this cleans up the drumsound a whole lot.

I think most producers dont actually replace their drums, just use the samples to make sure hits are coming through right in fast parts. Just put a compressed version of the kick and snare under it, and your blasts will get a little bit of their power back. You should also look in to parralel compression. Just basic mixing stuff before you go and make a digital drumtrack out of your real recordings.

i've actually pulled samples from songs that had a snare or kick that was singled out and made a sample from that. some were worth the effort.

haha but really I ended doing what you suggested to him earlier more than anything. but after I've equed them to how I like. that way when I replace the sound be it cause there was static in the mic or I was being lazy where I can just plug in the equed version of my kick so all I have to do is adjust volume.

but the only think on drum check you can use is the kick since everything else was played along with everything else basically negating anything you could've used.
