The sample pack is full of amazing drum sounds, but navigating them can be a minefield. Ben shows you how to go through these sounds, identifying which are best for you as an artist. He shows you how to edit these samples creatively to create new techno grooves.
Using a variety of techniques and third party plugins , Ben shows you how to create more tone, identity and shape into your drum sounds, focusing on techniques like distortion, various EQs and compressors, and multi-band saturation.
To start with, Ben goes through the different bass sounds, again finding and identifying the sounds that suit the kind of techno you’re looking to make. Ben then uses third party plugins to make the bass sound thicker, more present and enhanced for that Techno sound.
Now the groove is locked down, it’s important to find that signature hook for your Techno track. The sounds in the pack are auditioned by Ben, and you see his process of identifying the killer hook. Again, Ben shows you some of his up-to-date techniques to really push his hook to its full potential.
Ben goes from this four-bar loop, expanding out to a 48 Bar song idea. He covers automation, creating a break down, understanding build ups and the drop. He’ll show you how to utilise the samples to create maximum energy in the right places for this techno track.
