Join J. Scott Giaquinta for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding unique sources for drums, part of EDM Production Techniques: Drums.
…There are a ton of places to find unique sounds for using your drum tracks.…Don't be afraid to go through your music or sample collection, to look…for unique moments in time that you can tweak to make your own.…Or, turn some of your drum samples into unique rhythmic elements by tweaking them.…I'm going to show you how you can turn a simple hi-hat into a 70's walker guitar.…So, first you’ll notice I have this high hat track here.…I’m going to play it by itself.…Simple.…It’s not a whole lot to it.…Play it once more there’s nothing much to it, it’s just a hi-hat track.…So, what I’m going to do is start with an auto filter.…
Now you have to bare with me as I build this.…It’s not going to sound like much until I get the chain of…plug ins on it, but once I’m done, you’ll understand what I’m doing here.…Now first I’m going to start by turning up the residence of it.…All right, set that to about 2.5.…Now I'm going to sweep through this and play this.…I'm actually going to make my loop point a…little smaller here so you can hear this quickly.…
