...I was listening to some old rock records tonight and I realize just how much BETTER ride cymbals used to sound---especially bell strikes. And by 'better' I mean DEEP, like a big ~~~~in' anvil down in the pits of Mordor.
All the sample libs I've got have the more 'modern' ride sound, which is 'tingier' (I guess to cut through all the 'metal' noise?) No beef by comparison.
Anyone got any recommendations on old school rides like I'm talkin' about?
