"Your snare sounds like shit" is a meme at this point, as you probably know.
Everybody is struggling with their snare sound and we remember how we just couldn’t figure out how to make a snare sound amazing when we started producing and mixing.
So we wanted to talk about what it actually is that causes a snare to sound “bad” or amateur and tell you what to do instead.
Benedikt made some experiments at the end of 2021, mostly comparing analog gear to plugins (among other tests he did), trying to figure out where he can make things more efficient without sacrificing quality. Ideally even improving the quality of his work while also moving faster and more intuitive.
