Dubstep Growl Production - Part 3 - The Sub & Bus Processing
In the third part of our Dubstep Growl Production series, Jonny Strinati continues demonstrating his amazing production methods.
Welcome back to this weeks MassiveSynth.com web tutorial. So far in this series we’ve created several different loops using Massive. We then made some patch edits, mixed the levels, and added some basic EQ. In this video, our own Jonny Strinati continues teaching the ins and outs of his music production method. This time we take an in-depth look at the Sub & Bus Processing using Apples Logic digital audio workstation.
We start this tutorial by adding a Sub Bass to the production. The Sub Bass will sit under the other notes and will add a nice booming part to our composition. What’s great about the Sub Bass is that we can roll off anything above 200hz. This makes it an easy instrument to add, that doesn’t complicate anything by muddying the mix. You might see the Kick drum or another Bass sound compete over frequencies, but you can easily duck these out if need be.
Later in the tutorial, Jonny introduces effect processing using the Bus and Aux send/returns. Sending audio to be effected in the Aux channels is not only an easy way to process multiple channels using the same effects, but it is also processor friendly. Meaning that you won’t use as much computer power effecting all the channels as you would placing the effects on each separate channel.
In the next tutorial we will take a look at beefing up the sounds using side-chain compression. We’ll polish off the composition, and add a little bit of mastering to top of the production. Thanks for watching. Until next time, cheers!
