MsTris Beats Presents: The UMPH: Audible Mention Guest Post

Posted by Ms.Tris On November - 20 - 2012

I introduced Audible Mention a few months back. I had the honor of doing a guest post in September. It’s all about adding “The UMPH” to your drums. I added a video as well. Here is an exerpt which links to the full article:

Are you the greatest drummer that ever graced the planet? Oh the dreams of super producers like us! Though we may not be sitting behind a 50 piece Pearl set, there are ways to add spunk to your thump. Let’s imagine that you have created a basic 8 bar pattern. You’ve got your Drums That Match and Knock . You are now ready to add something to spice things up a bit. This something is what I call “The Umph”.

The “Umph” can be anything that meshes with the frequencies of your main pattern. For today’s post I started with a basic kick and snare pattern. I have some understanding about the frequency range of drums which our Audible Mention host explained as:

“20-10k is where you will find that sexy shimmer on hats and cymbals.

10-5k is where you’ll find the sound’s presence, meaning how close it seems to you. More importantly how close it is to other drums.

It has been a long minute.. I know I! The “Life” part got super crazy for me in October. I had to deal with classes and the passing of two family members. One being my 3 year old malti-poo dog who was with me 24 hours a day. I mean this is the dog everyone called my little stalker..ha ha..I moved and she moved. No one ever had to look for her, because she’d be right at my feet.

I took that really hard, and still had to push on with music, college, and life. I think I told you all I got two puppies 3 year ago. Well the second dog moped and grieved so bad, we decided to get another one. We found one in Pennsylvania Dutch Country straight from a farm. She can’t replace my “Puppy Bear” but she really helped me rise from the funk I was in. We named the new puppy Ju Ju Be. We almost named her Malti-Monkey..rofl she is quite wild…

I really missed you all, and I tried to get a few post in. Minutes and my mind just would not allow me to type anything worth reading :(. One great thing about me..I am resilient as an athlete!! No stopping here, and I hope I encourage you to keep on through hard times.

The work I managed to do last month is still awesome. I am maintaining my 4.0 in courses. To my surprise Web Design and Interactive Media includes audio and video!! Wooo HOO again!. I have tons of things to share with you. I will most likely post 1-3 times a week until I get things rolling smoothly again. I’ll be back in a few with a guest post I did for “Audible Mention”.

o.k. now that I am back, WHATS been Up WiTh YOU???? Those in the US are getting ready for Thanksgiving..but I wanna hear about the beats you’ve been cookin 🙂

See you in a few..
