Lively Dynamic Ride Cymbals?
I was listening to a Stevie Wonder tune (something from Innervisions) and on one of the tunes, his ride cymbal playing adds a lot of depth and movement -- playing around with various timbres by hitting the bell in different places with different amounts of force. Both the timbre and the accent (volume) vary.
It got me to realizing that I really want to use that on a track that I am working on. Most of the ride samples that I have are pretty simplistic - with just a few flavors. I was wondering if there is an app out there or sample set that has a variety of tones from the same ride cymbal that one could use for that sort of dynamic ride playing.
