What the hell is it? I've heard that Lamb of God's drummer uses an electronic pad to "trigger a bass drop" live, and I have a feeling that it's that really deep, boomy sound you hear sometimes at like the beginning of breakdowns and stuff.

Is that what it is? If so, how do you create a sound like that in your own recordings? Can you synthesize it, or should you try to find samples somewhere?

Are you suggesting I tune my bass down to make a sound like that? There's no way that would sound even remotely close to the sound I'm thinking of, it's much lower than a downtuned bass and it's definitely electronic in origin

wow what a douche. but. I think a bass drop is what you thought it was like the beginning of breakdowns and stuff. but im not 100% certain on it though

lol, he's quoting public enemy


A drop (in dance music) is where the intro ends and everything drops into place. A bass drop would (I guess) mean a sub-bass (octave lower than regular bass) dropping in pitch from an upper range down to the actual sub bass range.

Dude, if a title read "penis pics, come on in" I think about 93% of UG would still click on it.

Nonsense. I'm telling you, nothing makes the fairer sex swoon like an extensive knowledge of siege weaponry and medieval battle tactics.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Okay, as awesome as this is, I hate to hijack the thread too much. To the TS, I know exactly what you're talking about, but I don't know how they get it live. I've always been curious about that actually.

Well, I suppose I do know what one is after all.

Now I need to find out how to make that sound in my recordings.
Actually, i have an electronic kit and sometimes i'll run it through my guitar pedal, there is a sub-bass octaver setting on there that I could mess around with
