Samplecraze has announced the release of Low End, a new eBook covering everything you need to know about the bass end in pop, dance & urban genres.
While a great bass end may not guarantee you a hit, failure here will scupper your chances, particularly if you’re working in urban, pop or dance styles. So bass, the bottom end, the low end — call it what you will — to craft a successful pop, dance or urban track, you need to get what’s happening in those low frequencies bang on.
Samplecraze’s latest eBook Low End: The Definitive Guide For Producers takes on this vast and much misunderstood subject. Author Eddie Bazil has poured decades of dance and urban sound-design experience into this epic exploration of the bottom end, and the result is far more than a book about mixing.
Eddie covers everything from choosing classic sound sources like the classic Roland TR808 and 909 synths, to programming parts with a real feel — and parts that won’t cause problems when it comes to the mix. There’s plenty of practical advice on sound-sculpting using filters, both creatively and to remove ‘mud’ and avoid masking, on dynamics processing and ways to add ‘warmth’ using tube, tape and analogue gear emulations. All of the production tricks you’d expect to see in dance, pop and urban genres are explained in detail, from layering different sounds and parallel processing, through side-chaining your gates and compressors for pumping and other effects, triggering sub-bass synths, and modulation of various synth and effects parameters, to the many different ways you can use automation to your advantage.
The eBook is available to purchase for $25 USD.
