Un­der­pin im­pact hits

Future Music - - FEATURE -

If you’re cre­at­ing a huge cin­e­matic ‘hit point’ sound, it’s worth un­der­pin­ning your brighter, an­grier, more metal­lic sounds with deep dark hits. Com­bi­na­tions of low-pitched drum sounds, treated with sim­i­larly dark, long re­verbs can be hugely ef­fec­tive. Try blend­ing a deep Taiko sam­ple with an or­ches­tral bass drum, an 808 kick and pos­si­bly a low tom as well. Spend some time fi­ness­ing ve­loc­i­ties (of­ten qui­eter ones work bet­ter than the loud ones) to help set the rel­a­tive vol­ume bal­ance of these sounds, then some EQ be­fore re­verb. Try this sound un­der your brighter hits and they’ll pack much more punch.
