In The Studio With The Chainsmokers
In this video, The Chainsmokers take us behind the scenes into the making of their popular track, “Roses,” revealing its key components in Ableton Live. Explaining their techniques, approaches to arrangement, as well as the plugins used, there is plenty of useful advice we can take away.
For achieving crispy drums, one technique that we found fascinating is their use of guitar amp sims. Emulating the harmonic distortion achieved from tube saturation, these plugins are excellent for creating sonically-rich sounds, such being the case for the duo’s drum sounds.
