ADSR Sounds has launched Making Trap with FM8, a mini series of video tutorials by sound designer Jonny Strinati.
In this 4 part micro course, our resident expert Jonny walks you through the steps of designing Trap drums, a sub bass and arp, a riser and finally pulling it all together into one fantastic loop and a deep look at how to EQ/Compress/Mix Trap music.
Videos 1 and 2 of this mini series on Trap in Fm8 focus on designing drum elements and a heavy sub. You’ll learn pro tips and tricks for creating hard hitting drums and how to sequence them all within FM8. We’ll also be walking you through making a rib rattling sub bass with some sick tips on how to get the optimum BOOM!
In videos 3 and 4 we’re going to take a look at creating a riser with the pitch envelope and pulling together our sounds into a loop including mixing the sounds. There’s a real treat in video 4 as we take a 20 minute look at Eqing, compressing and ultimately mixing trap music.
The video tutorial series is available to purchase for $9 USD.
