I really want to cover some Linkin Park, but in almost every one of their songs they have a crushed drum beat at the intro, usually continuing throughout the song.
For instance, in their song 'in the end', you can here it underneath the piano riff in the intro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVTXPUF4Oz4&ob=av3e
How can I make that sorta sound? I have cubase if that makes a difference.
In the End is an example of a DJ scratching a drum beat. Difficult to reproduce without being a DJ, and having their kit. It's possible - but certainly falls under the 'advanced' heading of production!
I can make you a quick tutorial on how to produced a crushed drum kit ( a la :Drum Distortion ) if you want?
Send me a PM and I can do it this afternoon.
Most likely a graphic EQ with most of the bass and some of the top end knocked off will get you there. Maybe a mild overdrive and touch of stuck phaser.
What, a drum track with the eq and od and phaser? I've tried stuff like that before and have occasionally added a bitcrusher but the whole beat sounds very broken up and not too smooth. And whats a stuck phaser? I've never heard of it before
[fwiw - I teach music tech @ a uni, so I hate trying to describe things like this. To keep the speed up, it's easier to just do it!]
Thanks a lot, noodles! I think for the in the end cover i might be doing i'll probably just sample the beat anyways, but im definetely gonna use this sort of thing in some original songs i should be doing soon. Thanks a lot!!!
