If I remember correctly this is not the most easy exercise for a drummer
though it is basically simple: you just hit the drum twice with one
stick and then twice again with the other. The main effect is, that you
avoid the machine-gun effect that unveils a drum computer immediately.
The not-so-easy part is to do that very very fast...
So let us try it in H2:
put two slightely different snaresounds in two instrument channels.
set resolution to 32
set notes like this:
xx xx xx
xx xx xx
an so forth...
I tried it right now (with just one snare an different velocity) and it
sounds, like one can come near your example (with some serious fiddeling
good luck ;-)
p.s.: if there is a experienced drummer out there that knows a better
way, please upgrade :-)
