We all know the sound: it’s that ubiquitous crash at the end of a bar. It’s that familiar reverb-washed sample that serves as the booming signal of the next section. It’s the split-second breather from the forward momentum of the kick and bass. It’s that super-compressed snare with a gated tail that is simply too large to overlook. In the production world, it’s known as the Pryda Snare, and it’s quite possibly the most common trope in big room music. — Created, collaborated, and released on Splice, a new home for producers.
