Processing a sampled, noisy, reverby, drum loop
I'm really new to drum processing techniques. I want to know what steps I might take to improve the overall punch of a drum loop I sampled from an old (digital source) jazz/soul recording. There's some underlying noise, lots of reverb, and the loop is quiet, but when I raise the volume it clips without ever getting too loud. I'm not warping it at the moment, fwiw. There's not much ride cymbal action in the loop.
My questions are:
-What can I do?
-How (general is fine)?
-Why does that make sense?
I want to keep the groove, but make it punchier, and take out as much of the unwanted noise/reverb. Hopefully it won't sound too "processed". Any suggested tutorials would also be appreciated.
