    Hi Todd,

    I never did this and I am not sure what sound you are after (I’m Gen-X, lol), but you can try this out:

    - Copy the snare to a second track or even better make a second track with snare samples because this will avoid the possibility of false triggering.
    - Insert a compressor on the original snare track with the settings that you like.
    - Activate the side-chain function and feed the copied snare track in the sidechain.
    - Timeshift the copied snare track 50ms forward in time (to the right, so to speak).

    Have fun!
