Thank you for your prompt reply ( why does that sound familiar)?
Yes, I thought about doing that, and maybe adding some reverb similarly, but I was hoping there would already be a useable sample of that in the stock files of Logic. After all, who can say that they've attended a concert and not seen the drummer choke a crash cymbal at least once during the performance!? Is there an explanation for the omission of such a commonly used drumming technique? I have little about Logic to complain about, but this is something that should really be included in any drum sampling file set.
Short of doing what you suggested, or just putting a mic to a cymbal to record me choking a crash, (to load into the EXS 24) is there a place I can go to download a sample?
I honestly didn't think I'd have to search for this, or employ plug-ins or effects to emulate this widely used and heard sound.
Maybe my expectations were out of line, and I need to just get used to the idea of no choke samples, but............
