I'm making a deathcore song and I really want this in the breakdown

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4U9xeUJY_Yo

beginning at 2:37, they use it a couple of times
it's like BOOM *breakdown*

how do I get that, and what is it called?
also, anyone know more sick breakdowns with these things?

yeah I thought that too but some people say a bass drop is just a slide on the bass

It isn't. It is a sample. There has to be some sort of sampling thing to do it live. A lot of bands have their drummer have a little electronic pad hooked up to some sort of brain. The hitting of it triggers the sample.

Google 808 sample.
It's a bass drum sample commonly referred to as a bass drop. There's tons of variations of the 808 sample. I had a package of em a while back, you might be able to find that.

these guys aren't really all that bad. It's nice listening to deathcore very very rarely ha.

I've found myself getting more and more into it the more I listen to it. I still hate pig squeals and stuff, but I guess I just just pay more attention to the instruments than the singing, although I do like the not-so-deep vocals some bands have, reminds me of Converge.

I was listening to Elysia's deathcore stuff in my friends car the other day, and every time there was a bass boom his speakers would just shit out and make sounds like the fireworks at the end of the levels in Mario Bros. for NES.

So I cranked it.

My favorite bass drop is in Hey John Whats Your Name Again. The only song I like by The Devil Wears Prada.

Don't over use bass drops though as more than a couple in one song will sound pretty bad.

Bass drops are awesome, The Red Shore had their pad set up on their IKTPQ/BMTH tour, and seriously, you could feel the air coming out of the speakers.

Yes! The soundcheck for their drums was mad. He did like 10 in a row.
