    Hello guys!

    I wanted to know how you guys do your bassbombs in the homestudio?
    I would like to put some in before breakdowns to make it heavier i guess^^

    Are there any special vst's? Do i need to program midi for that? Maybe special eq?

    Thx in advance!

    Frequency generator plugin. Usually found in the "audio suite" or "effects" portion of your DAW. As in not a plugin exactly but a process. In Reaper it's a JS plugin, ProTools its in Audio Suite. Enter frequency desired and create a 2-3 second audio clip of the frequency. Put the transient right where you want it to drop and fade the end out. Play with the fade out tail to suit the song tempo.

    I've seen burping into an RE20 mic be turned into a bass drop hahaha so there's a lot of options.

    Vid might help...

    i just googled "free bass drop samples" and eventually found a site. I downloaded .wav bass drops tuned to B cause that's the main chug note for my band. Just drop them in your daw and BOoOoOM.

    On one project I worked on, I was handed this "super cool sub drop sample" by the guitarist who had been given the sample by some other guy who had made it specially for him or something like that. All the hype.

    ...It was a sine wav, that lowered in pitch a bit, then faded out. That's it. All this excitement over "we have to put this sick drop sample in there man". :lol:
