Hi Jay, thank you so much for doing this!
I am always amazed by how your snare drums sound. They are loud and super clear, yet the high band on the god particle is barely moving.
When I level my snare to be loud enough in a mix it is not clear anymore and the high band on tgp is taking off like 3-4db. When I go for a clear snare it sounds tiny.
Could you share any advice on how to achieve a loud and clear snare (apart from finding a better sample) and on what I am probably doing wrong
