Hard to explain, but here goes
Basically when u normally drop tunes in your dropping a kick ontop of a kick so the snares are in time...easy, 1 type of offbeat mixing is when you drop the first snare in a bar on to the first kick of a bar; this gives a sort of double snare/kick effect (sounds really shoddy if ya is runnin both tunes but it's sounds crazy when u flick between the snares and the the kicks of the seperate tunes) Sounds best with identical tunes but its the case of finding tunes with similar drum patterns if ya gonna mix different ones.
Another form is where u drop the 2nd tune in 1 hihat behind, sounds good when u flick beween kicks but sounds shit if ya runnin the two tunes over each other. This one gives more of an echo effect.
very similar except phasing is dropped in 'on beat', so the kicks/snares layer ontop of each other. This gives a sort of clean phasing effect of the whole tune. With some offbeat techniques you may also get phasing basslines but it depends on the length and type of bassline.Originally posted by qdos
Isnt that classed as Phasing?
