Youve created a track but how do you give it that polished edge ? Discuss the art of mixing and mastering and swap production techniques.
But my body is tellin me yes...
Haha, My kicks are never punchy enof...Even wen my speakers are at their limits.
I use dnb kicks a WHOLE lot...
What kinda kicks do u guys use predominantly?
I use all kinds of kicks. Mostly vinyl breaks. For me its all about give and take betweenthe bass line and the kick drum. I use a parametric eq on the bass track to make a pocket for my kick drum to punch through the mix. Just imagine your kick is hitting at80Hz go to your bass track and eq out as much 80Hz as you see fit and adjust yourbandwidth. Sometimes I can BP filter a kick drum add resonance till I get a sound I like.
Soul/funk drums are pretty versatile.
Bright and snappy. Layer those kicks with the loose low end kicks.
Try dance kicks
Dance Kicks are gr8 , as long as u know what to apply on em .
ive got a trick or 2 under my sleeves that should help u enough produce a breathtaking kick .
1- Choose DNC Kick 1 from the Legacy Package in Fruity Loops
Lower its Pitch by 100 .
2- Clone DNC Kick 1 , Reverse Wave Signal , Reduce the Out Signal , until the wave length is in the middle ( dont forget to normalize as well .
now DNC Kick 1 ( not reversed ) will be ure main kick , apply Maximus Filter to it ( Master Aid 1 ) then apply Equalizer ( Raise ure Mid Tone Hertz ) lower The High Tone Hertz ( which are on the right of the equalizer ) tweak it until uve find that Full Notch Kick .
The reversed Kick is for the vaccum effect which will surely give u the atmospheric effect that will make ure kick stand out above anything else .
Try it It May Help :)
layer your kicks!! (or any drumsound)- with a tom, for punch it would be high tom- an highpas filterd kick- a kick with very short decay (you literally at punch)
Instead of surching for the perfect sounds build them, it's fun to do and you learn a lot about how sounds react & interact use a short sound for punch, a sound for the body, mayby at some extra color with an third filterd sound.Shape theme with the envelopes en aply eq so the fit like puzzle peaces
Adjust pitch If you use FL adjust pogo button in the sampler (make sure you selected show legacy effects at general settings)
The order of your FXI'll leave that to the pro'shttp://www.soundonsound.com/sos/nov03/articles/logicnotes.htm
Hope i could help you a little
if you use FL, you will fall in love with the Soundgoodizer. makes your kicks come alive. use caution.
