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.
Be sure to bookmark ” Audible Mention”. There is valuable engineer information weekly!
Happy Beat Making To All!~
Pz Til Later…
