Used the Subtractor synth from Reason.
Please refer to the pack description for a full list of the sounds synthesized.


AO_Subtractor_Snare_1_1

Just a burst of noise in Reason Subtractor with a Low-pass filter.
Noise decay 127 (max 127), noise color 76 (max 127), noise level 127 (max 127).
Amp envelope is decay only, decay = 60 (max 127)
Filter env is also decay only, decay = 30 (max 127), amount 127. Filter set to Low-Pass 12, freq 57 (max 127), Res 0.



AO_Subtractor_Snare_1_2

Same as previous with the following modifications:
Patched inverted filter envelope to filter resonance, amount set to 56 (max 127)
Filter Freq 63, Res 47.
Filter env decay 30, amount 127.


AO_Subtractor_Snare_1_3

Same as previous put through a medium room reverb, dry/wet set to 34%.
Still not very natural, but sounding better with a bit of reverb. Reverb can help a lot with synth snares.



AO_Subtractor_Snare_2_1

Reason subtractor
Osc 1 is off (set balance 100% to osc 2 + noise).
Osc 2 set to sine wave, Oct = 3. Noise decay = 127, Noise Color = 127, Noise level = 127.
Filter set to low-pass 12 and completely open (=127).
Amp env decay = 44


AO_Subtractor_Snare_2_2

Same as previous put through a medium room reverb, dry/wet set to 34%.
Again, just to illustrate as a little bit of reverb can help make a synth snare sound a lot more realistic.


AO_Subtractor_Snare_2_3

Reason subtractor
Osc 1 is off (set balance 100% to osc 2 + noise).
Osc 2 set to sine wave, Oct = 3. Noise decay = 127, Noise Color = 127, Noise level = 127.
Filter set to low-pass 12, freq 87.
Amp env decay = 48
Filter env decay = 41, filter env amount 127 (max).


AO_Subtractor_Snare_2_4

Reason subtractor
Osc 1 is off (set balance 100% to osc 2 + noise).
Osc 2 set to sine wave, Oct = 3. Noise decay = 97, Noise Color = 127, Noise level = 127.
Filter set to low-pass 12, freq 73.
Amp env decay 48
Filter env decay 41, filter env amount 77.


AO_Subtractor_Snare_2_5

Same as above, but now adding also osc 1.
Osc1 set to oct 3, semi-tones 5. Osc 1/Osc 2 mix set to 107 (max 127).
Medium room reverb, dry/wet set to 34%.


AO_Subtractor_Snare_2_6
