Free 808 “Boom” Kick

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On September - 15 - 2008

Hello to all..I had a great time with the live help on Friday. I wanted to let you know I’ve gotten several ideas for tutorials, and things some readers want to see. I know how it is to come to a site and want to ask questions, so I’ve made it easy by allowing comments. So far your questions help out a lot, so please feel free to be active with posting ideas etc. I’d really like more input from other producers as well. I believe in networking, so think of it as sharing, and getting some promotion. Please no spam or comments that contain explicit language. Also, remember to subscribe so you’ll know when I add new articles.

Todays 1st post idea came from “The Quick” through the Live Help I.M. He wanted that “Bangladesh- a milli -Shawty Red- Young Jeezy” Booooom usually made from an 808. I thought, I want one too 🙂

I learned about layering kicks years ago, but I was reminded of a technique I completely forgot about. Some producers call it “Tri-Panning” or Tri-Layer”. To achieve it you load 3 of the same kick into your software or hardware sampler, pan one all the way left, pan one all the way right, and leave one in the middle. Have all three triggered at the same time.

I added the 3 808 kicks, used the 3 way panning, added some compression, eq,sound clipper/limiting, then added the Fl Studio ” soundgoodizer”….

Next I adjusted the attack,hold, sustain, and release envelopes until I got a sound I liked.

This is the result , it’s a loud one :
