Trap Sounds with NI Massive Part 1 - Drum and Bass Sequence
Trap music is the latest sub genre of southern hip-hop and crunk music movements. It has absolutely exploded on the scene over the last few years, and as the demand for trap music tutorials increases we are going to try hard to bring them to you. We’re lucky to have Jonny again for this series of video tutorials, as he has a lot of really great stuff lined up. Let’s jump right in!
In Part 1 of this Massive Trap Sounds series, Jonny demonstrates how to create a nice drum and bass sequence using two performers and a stepper. This approach to sound design allows the user to quickly change the pitches of both the bass and the drum lines by simply triggering another note on a controller or a sequencer. Though it may seem a little daunting at first, using sequenced bass and drums can produce great sounding results in a very short amount of time.
Of course this approach is not only only limited to drum and bass music. With a little bit of creativity you can use this technique to sync any sort of sounds. Imagine syncing orchestral sounds like violin and cello, or even for game effects like wind noise and a roaring engine. Really the only thing that can hold you back with this method is your creativity.
