not Cereal Posted December 8, 2002 Share Posted December 8, 2002 something i only recently started to get really interested in is flamming the snare; at least i think thats what its called. when a drummer does it he will hit the drum with both sticks but slightly off timing - not a roll, but a "flam". is this the right word? anyway i hear it a lot on the radio, and i dont think the drummers are doing it, it seems added "after the fact". so i have been experimenting with different ways to do it "after the fact" to see if its cool. it IS kinda cool. you can add a midi snare track and this will tend to flam up a real snare. you can add a modded delay to the snare track and flam it like that. my favorite: add a second midi snare to a midi snare. have other midi events going on, even if routed nowhere. because midi is one-peice-of-data-at-a-time the snares will never hit at the same time, and they will FLAM. if ya have other midi events going on the flam will change a lot between hits. anyway i spent the last 4 days mixing this tune that needed some spice on the snare, but i couldnt figure out what - and this flamming thing is what made it work. just thought i'd share Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
