I didn't think this belonged in the guitar gear forum since this doesn't necessarily have to do with guitar. Anyone know how bands get those bass drops on there recordings? Like the really low pitch "booms". I know a day to remember, protest the hero, and dillinger escape plan use them. Is it a synth, or pedal, just a trigger? Is there a computer software kind of thing i can use to add them to my songs?

on record for those guys it's almost for sure midi. A band from my city has their bassist attach a subwoofer controlled with a footswitch to amplify a low bass note when desired.

Shameless advertising right there, i shoudl report you for that.

The only time you hear the bass on ...AJFA is when there's a bass boom.

Bass drops are really easy to use in recordings. Google 808 bass drops and find an audio clip you like, import it into your recordings. If you plan on using them live its a little more comlicated. Again download the clip, an easy method would be to use either a MIDI keyboard or a drum trigger hooked up to a laptop and program teh bass drop to sound when the keyboard is played or trigger is struck. If you dont have a keyboard player, place keyboard on the ground and have someone stomp it when you need it.

You should call them "sub drops" because there are two things that a bass drop can mean (one is the "sub drop"/"bass booom" and the other is where all of the bass frequencies are "dropped" from the song and it is just mids/treble).

They are accomplished by sampling.

For the record, there is a Bass forum.

For the record, this has nothing to deal with bass guitar.

Thanks for the help and humor. And thanks lordofthefood1. If anyone comes back to this...I have an old Korg midi keyboard and an interface that supports midi. How do I program the sounds for the keyboard or what program would I use? I got Cubase with my interface (tascam u144).
