13. The re­verse-whip kick

Computer Music - - The Drop -

Want to give your drop a rub­bery, ki­netic im­pact? Grab your main kick drum sam­ple, re­verse it, then place it on the beat be­fore the drop be­gins. Slide it along so the re­verse kick ends just as the drop’s first kick be­gins. You might hear an awk­ward ‘dou­ble-slap’ as the sam­ples segue to­gether. To fix it, trim some off the end of the re­verse kick and slide it up against the main kick again – re­peat un­til it sounds right.
