Some great beats so far, but I’m a bit bewildered as to how people are getting their drums to sound so good (punchy kick. Crisp hi hat), if no outside drum samples are to be used.  (unless they came under fx)

Spent ages trying to isolate a hat from the Dorsey track (filter, compression, fade out) but was disappointed with the result.

Appreciate some clarification (not secrets!)

 yeah no outside drums allowed....use the break man. the break is open as hell.  no clue what you use to make music but dont throw effects at it to throw effects at it.  decide what you  need and go from there.  also adjust your start points on the hi hat hits.  i took 4 or 5 of the hi hat hits in that drum break and made them different.  keep workin on it man.  hope that helps.  all comes down to some mixing too homie.

Heres my quick beat fellas and femellas;)

Drums are from the samples only (used a bit of the Basil sample to layer with the snare...)

Also used the Basil sample to create a piano type sound and a flute sound.

Bass is sampled from another song and i used a couple of outside accapellas...

Hey All, I am really looking forward to hearing everybody's track this week. I got the bass from Alan Walker on you tube and sampling that and transposing. The two tracks supplied are all glompt together but essential horns and drums. I hope my vocals are not laughable, not really hip hop but it does rhyme. Twin Peaks Time. Peace, Hugh

A good trick no matter what you use to produce music is understanding layering if you sample you should layer drums are a perfect example, a weak kick layered 5 times can be made dope a punchy that is all I did to get my drums right as a matter of fact that is all I ever do for drums now you can compress and filter later but if you learn to layer you have a strong foundation.

Yeah, see Fat Free nailed it if you take these tips your drums will be thick and rich in no time. Then you can add reverb and other mixing tricks but start with layers adjusting volumes and you will be good.

For the drums I made a hi-hat track by chopping out the kicks and snares from the dorsey break and looping it. Then I made some one-hits from the break (kick/snare/hat), processed/pitched them a lot and played them over the hat track.. The bass is chopped up from Ahmad Jamal's wave and the London sample is heavily filtered and chopped up too

This was a fun week...

I quite didn't understand if i was supposed to sample the bass from outside the provided samples. Anyway, my Bass is straight from the Lee Dorsey track... maybe it's a bit loud...

Fredson Jacobs out here dropping slander on joints that :flames: :lol:

 

 

..but really, stacking, warping, pitching, and various fxs are all part of the process for the drums.

bass is from L.S.D. Partie by Roland Vincent which I got from the Ocean's Twelve soundtrack (the Ocean's series soundtracks being a big influence on me musically)
