Schallwellenmagie presents: Electronic Music Production Part 3

homezone1
 

Ok here we go again, lets talk about a major problem in Electronic Dance Music of today. What you certainly need for a good track to work on the dancefloor is a big fat bassdrum. But that´s not all – it also needs to sound interesting, unique, and not trivial.

Soon or later you will get bored of the preset bassdrums provided by your system´s sound generating software. And creating a new one only with synthesizers is rather tricky and can become pretty time-consuming.

Schallwellenmagie constituting soundwaves for an electronic future!  And that future should be desinged by yourself, in your own kind of style, formed by your own ideas leading to your private sound discoveries. Forget presets.

All you need is once again a music editor like Audacity, free available online. Go and look out for bassdrums, and similar sounds, this might also be claps, kicks, snare hits, even door slamming and so on. Start with not more than lets say 5 single sounds. Cut them properly with your editor, and start to experience the different results you can hear. The character of each single sound will influence the end result: playing all together at the same time!  

Change parameters like volume, length, pitch, use equalizers, modulate the single sounds with your effects zoo, and so on… and check the result. Soon you will get a feeling what is enhancing and what is disturbing your sound. Of course you need to put down the volume of all single sounds to prevent clipping at the end: listen how the volume ratio correlation work together.

The whole process is very easy, and will train your ears in hearing the elements a good kickdrum is made of. But dont stop here: the same process can be used to create all functional percussion sounds in electronic music, and surely the glitchy and strange sounding stuff too we all like so very much. Mix down whatever you can get, feel free and be  open minded.

Questions, critics and discussion are welcome! Let me know your ways of getting cool sounds, your experience with sound material taken from inconvenient sources. I am looking forward to any comment and promise to answer asap!
