I am currently working on recording a new song and I am using FruityLoops(FL Studio) to sample it. I want to make the drum beats with FL, but I am wondering, what are common notes for snare drums in a two-snare drum set? I can tell the difference from FL drums and RL drums because in FL, you can hear that it's a single note, unless you have it on the piano roll. In RL, you can hear the "up-down" effect. So that's what I'm wondering... I hope at least some of that made sense... I'm a guitar guy, not a drum guy lol.
If you are using MIDI, just match the key of your song. It should sound pretty good.
Bb quarter step down.
