I recently did a nice session with a patron using a drumloop he gave me, which is the original drumloop that was used in the classic Alien Girl tune by Ed Rush, Optical and Fierce.
So here‘s me having a go with it, layering things a bit and doing some analog-modeled processing to glue the drums together more and add some energy and dirt to the sound.
Let’s get that low-level signal up for added body and full tone.
It’s easy and fun to create two-oscillator basses such as Reese basses with Serum, as they sound lively due to the movement caused by two detuned oscillators.
However, this often causes a problem with sub bass, which will also drift in and out, which we don’t want: we want a solid sub bass level.
This video shows you how it’s easy to fix this with Serum.
So in this series, I want to take a song I’m working on and go thru some things that I feel are interesting. Can be song structure, sound choices, plugins etc.
Aiming to keep more bite-sized than mega masterclass, so this is 24 minutes long.
In the first episode, talking about how to build a song from intro to its busy part and checking some useful plugins in the process, too.
