Getting That Boom In Your Beats

You are tooling on home; your two, 15 inch, 5000 watt sub-woofers are banging the beat into the back of your head and thumping it into your chest. Then you get out and go into the house to your PC to review your latest "sick" beat. Sadly it really is sick sounding. Weak and feeble like it is struggling with the flu.

Even when you take a cut of it and slide it into your SUV's Kenwood KDC-HD545U and crank the volume, it just doesn't have the kick and bass that the pro recordings have.

What Should You Do To Blast The Bass?

The answer is pretty simple and every lady that wants thicker looking hair knows it. You need to layer your sound. You see if a lady wants thicker looking hair she asks her stylist to layer it and that is what you have to do with your beat.

Now before I tell you how to layer you bass tracks, let me say that there are other ways to boos the bass, but they require a knowledge of graphic equalization, side-chain compression and filtering. So for our purposes, layering will do just fine.

Layering Works On Every Beat Maker

Whether you have Dub Turbo, BTV Solo or a high-end digital beat maker like Fruity Loops, layering can work. When you work with a graphic equalizer it allows you to manipulate the volume levels of slices of the sound you are working on, so you can adjust the lower and upper tones of a kick bass sample to get a good thump.

You can further enhance the sound using a compressor that has an attack and decay setting to get a sharper or softer sound to your bass. With layering you can do somewhat the same thing.

Here Is How You Layer Your Kick And Bass

The cool thing about this technique is that it works just as well on the high end beat makers as it does on the more beat makers that do not have graphic equalizers or sid-chain compressors.

You simply create duplicate tracks with the same patterns on them and the you assign different kicks or bass to each one. These samples will play simultaneously and blend together to make one bigger sound.

Suppose you have a sample that has the sharp attack you want, but it lacks the thick boom you also want. All you need to do is find another sample with that boom you desire and make two duplicate tracks and then place each sound sample on its own track. By adjusting the tracks volumes you can get just the right mix of punch and boom you want.

The same can be done with different kick samples. By combining severely samples on multiple tracks and adjusting the volume of each track you will effectively create the huge kick bass drum sound that you want.

Remember you are not limited to only two tracks. Sometimes it may take 3 or more tracks to get the sound you want. You can use this trick to really create booming beats that will have your friends and neighbors off their backsides and on the floor dancing.

You will also be able to really give those twin 5000 watt sub-woofers the work out they deserve using the beats you made.
