Pretty new to the art of music production, hooked myself up with logic and a macbook and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good VST package that would be great for Tech House/Minimal/Techno thats compatile with logic.
I'm struggling hard with bass and not to keen on the logic synth interface or sound.
Also anywhere i could find good samples (kick/snare/hat/percussion one hits)
No single vst is gonna give you what you need. Although a good start is drumatic, its free and has very nice clean drum synthesis, which is a must. Most of the time i find drum samples don't quite cut if for minimal tech if you are going for a clean sound.
Compressing samples to the extent required tends to bring up the noise floor to audible levels and generates noisy transients. You can compress the living shit out of a drum synth with no worries. Then bounce it to audio.
other than that you need a good eq (preferably one with shelfing eq) and a solid reverb unit. A nice fm based synthesizer would not hurt at all either.
