Hey guys, I have been making beats for the past few months now, and I have gotten pretty good at the arrangement part of the projects. I have been trying to use audio processing effects to make my drum kits but don't really have much of an idea where to start. I know how to navigate my software but I don't know how or why to use audio processing effects. if you have any advice on starting to make my own sounds from samples let me know.

I’d suggest listen lots of music and find drum sounds that interest you. Look for a producer or interview to find what they used or what the technique is called. Once you’ve done that, you will start to hear some processing in your head then just apply that within mpc.

Some basic stuff, looking for lofi drum or low cut or high cut drum etc…
Or delay technique, distortion on drums etc…
