Programming & Processing Drums
Posted 11 May 2006 - 02:29 AM
Latelly the thing that's been bothering me is the SOUND of my drums, I use mainly BFD for my drums and whiile they sound great, they sound TOO real, the kinda music I make is kinda like slower speed Drum n Bass and Breaks, I really like how the drums sound on all of Pendullums records but yet I never can get anywhere near it, I know alot of people say its all about the sample, so maybe someone knows a good library of drum sounds? Basicaly here are my questions.
1. In general, what would you reccomend to get that nice breaks/DnB drum sound
2. What kind of processing would you reccomend me to do too BFD to get it to sound like that, and not as "real"
3. I've talked to alot of people who make this stuff and they swear by NI's Battery any particular reason??
4. I've also heard that people use an envelope to control eq's for their drums, why is that? and how does it differ from dynamic EQ (ala Sonalksis)
thanks so much!

and then find a good kick for example in ultra beat and erase the kick from BFD
or lower the BFD volume
try some reverb on the kick
havent used any of the plugins you mention

don't forget you can always just compress, EQ and distort/overdrive BFD (or whatever clean samples you're using) to reshape the sounds into something "new". Get brutal with EQ and compression.
