Hey people.....just started messing around with reason, but I can't make a decent DnB drumloop.......all mine just sound......well kind of flat....some just don't sound right!
I kind of know its all about the high hats
Ta for any help!
no need to steer away.... just vary your sound. i have many different hihats of varying sound but keep them all pitched within similar ranges. sometimes i have some pitched higher, some lower. all about fucking around till you've found the right sound.
you miss the point, maybe i was unclear, let me rephrase. a tick isnt necessarily an uniteresting hihat, but i steer away from using generic sounding samples as much as i can. i want charachter to my sounds.
Back to the original question, I believe a good undersdtanding and use of compression i.e. waves compressor will vastly improve the sound of your beatmaking, providing the drum samples you are using havent already been compressed.
ive never tried producing whats the best software? friend uses cubase but seems rly complicated. Anyone got anything with a steady learning curve? or can give me a bit of info on software to start with?
