How to sound like ? thread

fuck off :cornlol:

We’re talking about commodo whos a wellknown producer that produces music for clubs and how he probably made a kick not about what one could do

i resampled some bacon frying in the kitchen and me hitting a bucket of water for a kick in one of my recent tracks so fuck off again lol :hankey:

There’s quite a bit that ‘sidechain’ covers nowadays that it’s almost a shame to umbrella it all under that term.

Like there’s the stadium compression -remove anything in it’s way huge (slightly primitive sometimes) sounding one, where it’s almost like a limiter.

And then there’s a more sculpting one, where you go for a more frequency dependant sort of approach. Like some complex buss grouped thing - or really carefully set up the threshold in relation to each layer you want sidechained and then resample the effect and render it back as tracks of audio.

How can I recreate this bass? around 2min 30sec in


#65

i should know this


#66

#67

#68

sounds like an old Afrika Bambaataa electro rim shot or something…like from around 5:29 in this track:


#69

yea im trying to figure out what machine its from


#70

Yeah not sure which one, defo not 808,909,707,606,626…i’ve heard it in another song but can’t for the life of me remember which one - exactly the same sound as in the track you posted. It might even be from a synth and not a drum machine


#71

its an 808


#72

the one in the Planet Patrol one is an 808, but in the Ghost Town DJ’s one pretty sure that ain’t an 808


#73

Real 808, not fake-oh-eight emulator/sample pack.


#74

What sample on the 808 then bc ive never heard that


#75

Get yourself in front of a proper 808 and play around, you’ll be surprised once you find it.


#76

so its the metronome?


#77

Right, I’m sure Commodo stands out by doing what everyone else does…


#78

Could get fairly close by layering a square with a sinewave, the sine an octave below. Perhaps some stereo detune on the square + LP filter automation for the opening and closing.


#79

exactly ffs

unless you pipe down a bit and lose some of that obnoxious shit way of communicating im done


#80

You mean the “yah” sound?
Take a saw/square with an LP filter, with low cutoff knob, and high resonance knob. Play with an LFO or envelope on the cutoff, add some flangers/chorus, and most importantly of all, bitcrushing. There’s tons of free bitcrush distortion effects on the web. One of the best ones, imo, is “Geektronic”.
