    Exciters work great on hats.Try the exciter plug-in in Logic. It works quite well on making the hats cut through the mix, also the exciter setting on iZotope's Ozone is great as well.

    Hi drusif, glad you found it useful. Thing is, I'd love to take the credit for this article... but I didn't write it ;-) Leave a comment under the article for Mike Watkinson to thank him if you like! @Soundbase. Nice tip. Exciter is a very under-used effect. Of course a little EQing and the Exciter would be a great way to turn hi hats into crispy heaven using Logic's built-in effects. You could also layer hi hats with a synthetic tone using the EXS24 / Ultrabeat or any hi hat sample from within logic - and accentuate the high frequency of that sound and then mix it in. :)

    the exciter is cool. adds loads to the hats. what do u mean wen u say a synthetic tone. is that just choosin a sound then takin the attack away and pumpin the decay sustain and release? and also would it be following the same pattern as the hats?

    Hey drusif, Glad to know this is working for you. I think I actually meant sine wave... (default sound when you load up an EXS24)... but also synthetic tone could mean any synthesized sound (created in a synth - not from an audio sample or source). What do you mean by "following the same pattern as the hats"? - you mean when mixing?

    ah ill check it out. what i meat was would u do the sine wave on every hi hat hit but thats sounds a bit silly now cause a sinewave is a constant sound isnt it. will have a play with it over the weekend thanks mate
