Drums and per­cus­sion

Computer Music - - Producer Masterclass / Make Music Now -

16:50 The lay­ered Latin per­cus­sion in Mat­ing Call is a real fo­cal point, but there are also hi-hats and claps un­der­pin­ning it. The hats come cour­tesy of a sam­pled loop and the Roland TR-09. Daniël: “We tend to com­bine elec­tronic drums with sam­pled drums – in this case, hi-hats – as it gives this vin­tage feel, like disco. We com­bined it with our TR-09 record­ing.” Hans: “Then we have fin­ger­snaps. We use a lot of snaps and claps – some­times recorded our­selves.”

One of the Latin per­cus­sion lines comes from a rather sur­pris­ing source: Logic Pro X’s in-built Drum­mer. “It’s just an easy way to get quick re­sults,” says Daniël.

“Like EZ­drum­mer or some­thing,” con­tin­ues Hans. “Be­cause it’s a stock plugin, we don’t want to make it the cen­tre­piece of the whole pro­duc­tion, but you can work re­ally quickly, and it can fill up the whole per­cus­sion side of things re­ally well.”
