Drum & Bass Beats Masterclass
Reso introduces you to the course, and then plays through the rolling DnB that will be constructed in the upcoming tutorials.
This video walks you through the template that comes with the course, with audio and instrument channels, FX busses and a sidechain channel.
In this lesson, the kick drum is created by bouncing down a live-sounding sample, re-pitching it, and processing it with distortion and an enveloper.
Reso adds some low end weight to the kick using Logic’s EFM1 to create a sub tone. This sound is then further shaped with EQ and enveloper.
This module walks you through the creation of the gritty snare drum, and a secondary snare. Both are made by re-pitching and distorting an acoustic drum kit sample.
Reso begins to arrange the beat, showing his methods to create a live sounding programmed beat, with varying velocities and ghost notes employed to create a more intricate groove.
In this video, the high end elements including the shaker and hi hats are added to the beat. Reso once again programs the velocity of the shakers and hats to create movement.
In this video, a tambourine and a crash are added to flesh out the beat. Both are side chained to allow the kick and snare to cut through.
Reso shows you how he programs different patterns, with some extra added hat and ride sounds to add variation to different sections.
Moving on to the mixer section, this video shows some of the routing, and the processing that’s applied to the drums bus.
Reso continues to mix the drums, adding parallel compression to gel the different parts together and add some real dirt to the beat.
This module looks at the reverb bus, which uses Logic’s Space Designer. Reso also adds different EQ settings to the mid and sides to widen the reverb.
In this video, the beat is checked in mono, and an adaptive limiter is added to leave suitable headroom.
Reso concludes the course with one last look at the levels of the busses.
