Logic Pro Video Tutorial: Learn to Create 808-Style Sub Bass Kick Drum w/ Matt Shadetek

In this tutorial, electronic music producer, DJ, Dubspot Instructor and Logic Pro course designer Matt Shadetek shows you how to create 808-style, sub-heavy kick drums which is a familiar kick you’ll hear in everything from hip hop & R&B (more specifically southern rap and Miami bass) to various forms of electronic dance music such as drum and bass, dubstep, electro, and even some house. In a straight forward step by step process, Matt explains and demonstrates using Logic’s ES2 synthesizer default settings and adjusting the parameters (changing the waveform from saw to sine wave and adding pitch decay.) Matt went even further by adding explaining more advanced modulation techniques using envelopes to affect pitch, adding distortion, and high and mid-range frequencies to create some dynamism to the sound.
