Tune #6 – Halloween

Tune #6. I wrote this one on Halloween, it’s sounds a little bit ugly and crazy… just like Halloween. But underneath there’s a pretty little melody somewhere in the middle. Thanks for listening!

How to Make a Trap Kick Drum

TR-808
In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to design a kick drum from scratch using Native Instrument's Massive. The style we'll be working on is Trap. I find it very hard to work with samples in order to get just the right sound for the tune I'm working on. I prefer making sounds from scratch whenever possible. The key to making a good Trap kick is to use a Sine Wave and play with both the amp and pitch envelopes. As you'll see in the video below, this is a very simple approach that will save you a ton of time when coming up with sounds for your beats. Enjoy and leave a comment below.
