Can you layer 808s?
simple answer don’t layer them, if you have a short one and want a long tail just use the right plugin.
How can I make my 808 sound thicker?
There is no secret to making ” fat 808s ” it is perhaps the easiest sound to make from scratch. Just use any synth, add a pitch envelope to a sine wave, and make it have a long decay. Choose a distortion or saturation, and you are done.
Should I pan 808?
If you want to pan, use it for highs and percussives. If you’re talking about 808 bass, there’s no reason to. Frequencies that low are almost omnidirectional. I usually make my entire mix mono below around 250 Hz.
What DB should my 808 be at?
Instead of dressing up an 808 with half-a-dozen signal processors, just try making it louder than the other instruments. Start with all your faders down. Bring up the 808 so it’s at a reasonable level in your DAW (probably somewhere around -18 dBFS). Then, bring in all of the other instruments around it.
Is 808 a kick or bass?
The difference between an 808 and a kick drum is that an 808 refers to just the low-end bass sounds that emanate from the kick, but not the attack of the kick drum. In other words, an 808 is the bass – the sound and frequency – whereas the kick refers to the actual kick drum or VST.
What is an 808 kick?
“The TR- 808’s kick drum sound is made using a resonating trigger pulse, similar in behaviour to the way that a drum head vibrates when hit. When a drum head is hit multiple times in succession, even using the same force, the way the sound resonates will change depending on the state of vibration from the drum head.
Why are my 808s so quiet?
It could be an issue of headroom. If you have anything else playing at the same time (especially recorded tracks) and you have not EQed out the low frequencies on those tracks then they fight for space and your 808 gets squished.
Does Logic Pro have 808?
And there you have it, we’ve just created an 808 bass in Logic Pro X.
Should I sidechain kick and 808?
An ideal mix will have the kick transient hit first, and then the 808 bass fades in. However, blending the two should sound like one seamless bass sound. The kick should cut through, while still having a seamless blend. This method is often better than using sidechain compression.
How do I get my 808 to stand out?
- Add a compressor to the 808.
- Route the kick into its sidechain input.
- Set the attack to its fastest value, so that every time the kick hits, the 808 turns down momentarily. This will shave the transient off the 808.
- Adjust the release until the 808 returns naturally to full volume after the kick hits.
