Dubstep tutorial- shifted snares
Getting a great snare sound can really make your Dubstep track. In this Dubstep Tutorial, we look at taking individual drum sounds, then layering them up as well as positioning them to create variance. This helps you to build interest in your drums so they don’t sound so repetitive and will produce some interesting results.
Dubstep tutorial- kick drums
Hugely important is getting your Dubstep kicks bang on, this includes getting the sound right and the length. In this Dubstep tutorial we look at taking a number a kick samples, and treat them with EQ which you can use to roll off low noise for some kicks and also adjust Attack and Decay so that when they all play together you’ll have a great sounding kick.
