How would I go about getting the tone that RZA makes on he bass / snare?
What a deceiving thread title...
Answer: sample it when you can get one solo.
^^^Yeah Relic, I thought I was about to download some ill shit. lol
wtf is this.... Wheres the download??? *scratches head*
On the skrenf tho, If I hear a kik or a snare that I like in a song I turn on my sampl,ing part of my brain that has me listening to every note practically one by one searching for a breif split second in the song where I hear a kik or snare by itself or with the minimum amount of "stuff" over the top of it.
THEN I grab it and use it. If I ever get my sp running again I have a shit load of drums we sampled like this.
I can't find a clean spot from that song lol damn.
yo just get a drum break by itself and your straight, modify the sound a little, youll usually find drum breaks in the beggining of a song
rzas shit sounds gritty cuz he samples from vinyl and he puts this little machine into effect
its a preamp that he claims to make it sound gritty
Thanks guys, I was able to snag a piece out of it. I hope RZA doesn't find out lol.
Shit I wish I could afford that lol. Maybe in the future.
you didn't have to rip his snare lol, that takes all the work and fun out of making your own unique sound
why not be creative and come up with your own sound?
but if you are going to cop a sound...good choice.
that track is fucking dope!
No I just ripped his bass drum only. I don't really know how to make my own sound really. I just find hits and modify them to my own but the bass in that song really hit me. I love that feel.
good job.. Rza wont care...
how does it take the fun out by grabbing a snare..im guessing u sit in ur room wit a tin can and a pencil recording snares..
no but thats a good idea, i bet i can make some nice snares like that
i was thinking of getting a kick drum out of my couch, when i tap it with my fingers it makes a nice BD sound, i'm gonna record that shit and crank up the gain
I used to hit the inside of my kitchen sink , making beats on it, then chop it up.. That was the days when I had to record it to cassette then sample it. Then "Truncate" it.
thats hilarious, sampling a sink, hahaha
Well , you kow the metal -ish ones? They have a good "Booong" sound , and a nice "whap" to it if done right. Gave me something to do with the sp.
Additinally I'd play sounds through buckets and mic them, you can get creative you know?
Yup cardboard,buckets,your ladies ass.... Whatever it takes to make an ill sound that's completely original!try layering your kicks too that'll thicken em up real good.ever heard of circuit bending?some people even take apart toy keyboards and shit like then re wire em to make some pretty tight and sometimes jus wacky sounds.SO DON'T LAUGH!!JK
