I sent it to ya. I'm so tempted to try and rap over this loop, but I have no idea how that will turn out

Nice 'thump', Squeak - it's exactly what I'd love to include in my stuff.

When you say 'sub-sonic', and I don't mean to get into semantics re. sub-sonic's meaning in its literal sense, but what sort of hertz are we talking here, and how do you access and incorporate those ultra low frequencies? I suspect it's more than just taking the bass down an octave or two.

Can you give some insight into that aspect? Thanks.

Nicely done, Squeak.

My only critique would be to add some PWM to the strings to broaden the sound and to allow them to sit in the mix better with the bass.

Otherwise excellent.

Nice work squeak_D.

It is nice that is made only from 3 tracks.


That can provide a lot of power. Your RS-70 is working really fine.

Thanks that you share file with us.


Best regards.

Renig,
Actually what I did to that bass drum is just an old trick that's still being used today. I didn't drop octaves, I just dropped the tuning on the bass drum.

There's also another very effective trick, and that is to take a "tom" from an electronic kit. Not a tom that sounds closer to an acoustic kit, but rather and electronic kit tom. Take the lowest tom and drop the tuning on it, and man you'll get a nice low thumping bass drum.

Then you can flavor it a bit with effects. In my case I tweeked a few instruments within the kit, and then added a phaser effect as a "global effect" to the entire kit. That's how I got that nice effect on the crash cymbal that hits several times at the end of the loop.
