Achieve Huge Sounds With Layering
Layering your sounds can be an incredible tool in creating body and depth in your tracks. In an article from landr.com, they provide some helpful techniques in utilizing this process.
Among the tips provided in the article, our favorite is to layer subtle percussive elements throughout your song. The word subtle can’t be emphasized enough, as these are more designed to provide texture. There are plenty of ways to go about doing this, and it’s really a matter of experimentation as it relates to each track.
One suggestion that we do have is to take your chosen percussion sounds and send them to a bus. Move them to the background by applying a gentle LP filter with a touch of compression, such that they remain audible through busier sections.
