    Re: Explain please "How to make a drum&bass Roll"

    they're usually a bit more speedy than trance and house rolls

    Honestly, I think people use "roll" to describe the groove of a track - if I was going to call any specific element a roll, it would be the part of a break beat between the two snares. If I was going to call a bassline a roll, it would probably have an LFO on the pitch or filter, or both - and a downward gliss - think "Badass".

    Calling DnB rollin is like calling funk funkin - it's when the groove sets in and it just sounds right. You know it's just a two bar loop but you could still listen for 5 minutes.

    drum and bass is a genre that heavily relies on "break-beats" to giving the rolling feel to the drums, you are probably trying to recreate a feeling that originally is reproduced using the sampled beats
    not even a thing tho

    Re: Explain please "How to make a drum&bass Roll"

    To give a certain flow to ur drums, you can set ur hihats and stuff a little off- beat. (Like in piano roll put it 1/16 or 1/32 to the left or to the right). Also, u can have e nice flow in a drum break with only 3 or 4 elements. Than you have to make sure you have very effective samples. Layer them or eq them in a right way.

    There are no rules on how to make a beat, u can use every drum sample, or it even hasn't to be a drum sample.

    id agree its normally between the first snare and the 2nd kick when you get hihat-pedal hihat-hihat-ghost snare bit which is really what gives dnb its trademark chicka-chicka sound

    ahh i see he means that bit.

    yeah i find that a bit tricky to do. so you got your basic kik n snare (boom tish, boom-tish)
    then you add :boom tish titty-boom-tish

    its that titty bit innit

    Re: Explain please "How to make a drum&bass Roll"

    Just gonna repeat that it's from breakbeats. Samples of live drummers will give that realism to the drum track. You can program it from single shots if a really clean & tight sound is what you're going for.

    Agreed, "chicka chicka"
