Dubstep Drop Special
First up we look at CRaymak's workflow and then design a kick drum using ANA 2 to start off our drop.
Sonic Academy welcomes back CRaymak this week for Tech Tips Volume 46 - an in-depth set of tips and techniques on how to create a high impact dubstep style drop.
Sometimes starting a fresh track with the drop can help your creative flow, so over these 10 videos, we look at how to build one from scratch.
Starting with designing our own synthesised kick and clap in ANA 2 we then build some growling bass patches in Serum before getting a masterclass in resampling and warping using Ableton's manipulative audio warping algorithms.
Heading back into ANA 2 we design a powerful hitting sub bassline, build our very own multiband sidechain in Ableton and then fill out the drop with further percussive elements and effects before mixing and mastering to finalise.
With extensive use of Ableton's stock plugins, these tips show you just how versatile and fun but professional-sounding Ableton can be in achieving your very own unique sound.
Inspirational stuff to get those creative juices flowing so go check it out!
