How do I get that "explosion" sound on recordings?

Not too sure if this is the rught forum to post in. Mods, please move this if its not.



There's this "explosion", for want of a better word, at 6:18. Any idea how to get a similar effect on recordings? I'm using Reaper, if it helps.

You mean on the bass hit? That could be anything. Could be the bassist whacking his string with his hand. Could be a drum piece of some kind.

But, from having to do explosions for a uni assignment using synths, if you use Logic Pro as a DAW, then load up the ES2 synth, mess around with short envelope times and detune it a lot.

Pretty easy to make but I have quite a collection of bass drop samples I use for our recordings

I'm distracted by how painfully loose and floppy the bass player's strings are. ಠ_ಠ

Could very well be something artificially added in studio, but sounds to me like a well timed vocal grunt w/ bass drum & palm mutes on the guitars.

TS: look for a lesson on how to make a bass drop or for samples

That song was incredibly boring BTW. TS, learn as much as you can about songwriting techniques, don't be like that band.

I don't really hear anything that difficult there... I'm on crappy speakers so maybe I'm missing something but what I hear could be replicated with just about anything...

+1

Is that even playable that way?

True though. I'm not very into metal, especially not with cookie monster screaming, but that struck me as Nickelback's metal side-project.

Hey, each to his own I quite like the way that song goes from typical metalcore into the softer acousticy parts

it sounded like a bit more than just a bass drop to me (unless a 'bass drop' has collected more baggage since the last time i really used the term).

the guitars were playing harmonized melodies, then the drums and bass cut out for like the last measure. the 'explosion was:

-the bass dropping in and playing really low syncopated rhythm that juxtapose the previous melodies
-the guitar also playing syncopated parts
-the drums dropping in, really heavy on the crash it sounds like
-the singer dropping in with a scream

Wait is a 'bass drop' when the bass drops in or out? Or out then back in? Where does Skrillex fit into this discussion?

Well, the song that I'm currently working on has this bit towards the end, where theres a basic syncopated breakdown, which goes fast chug chug for three bars, then there is one bar of silence, then a single low A#, really hard, along with kick and crash, you know, with a sort of djent style "boing" sound to the guitars.....I'm thinking adding a big boom effect like that would add a lot of force to that bit......
