Drake Producer '40 Explains His "Underwater Sound"
40, the Grammy award winning producer behind many of Drake’s top hits, takes us behind the scenes in a video with Native Instruments. He explains the importance of having a laid-back atmosphere in the studio, in an effort to expand creativity and artistic freedom.
Describing his classic ‘underwater’ sound, he clears the misconception of using LP filtering, explaining that he instead reduces the sample rate. When this is done, the frequencies in the high-end are removed from the start, producing a sound that characterizes many of Drake’s productions.
