The original is played by a
long-haired dude wearing a Noh mask (hence the name)
in one of the most controversial bands of all time.
I could have called this the "Maggot Snare" or
something sic, but I think that blister already
My drummer played his signature
model, and I recorded these samples somewhere along
the way in 2011 but never came around to actually
doing anything with them.
It's very easy to handle - load the
plugin, play MIDI note D1/38 and that's it.
There are rim-shots, they get
triggered by velocities of 121 and above, so don't
go painting 127s and come complaining about the
clicky sound. ;)
ther than that - no articulations,
As the original snare was
specifically tailored to shine in a low-tuned modern
metal mix, that's of course where it belongs. But
feel free to use it for anything else as well, it's
a pretty dynamic beast.
This particular snare model is
generally relatively bright and has little low end,
so I added the "+punch" Module (lower right of GUI)
that will bring some serious *thump* into its sound.
If a Kick drum can be sub-kicked ...
why not a snare? :)
The "Silk" controls let you torture
the attack phase of the snare, for each microphone
independently. Turn to the left for more click, turn
to the right for more silk.
You can un-/mute the individual top
or bottom microphones completely by simply clicking
Have fun, and go easy on those
velocities! Especially for rolls, they need to be
very soft and gentle.
