people always suggest a touch of distortion on hi-hats to get them nice and crunchy.

i like to cut a whole lot of low frequencies out of my hats so that they're like a thin layer of cling-film stretching over the top of the track :Wink3: a tiny bit of reverb is good too sometimes.

one thing that really helps when getting groove into hihats is to think about pitch & velocity. if you're going to have 16th hi-hats 'ticking' along the top of the track to give it energy, just subtly tweaking the pitch and level can make all the difference.

i don't know what LM7 is i'm afraid but there are lots of good hat samples out there if you want? i tend to look for natural kits recorded by drummers.
