Processing 808 like this...

Post by dohnhammar » Sat May 22, 2010 8:30 pm

Hi there,

Does anyone know how this guy processed his 808-drums?

(it's the George Jupiter rmx..sorry, couldn't find a better clip)

would really love to know how to get such textures!

Thanks!

Sounds like a saturator/overdrive driven pretty hard and then compressed. Not terribly sure, you can also add a bitcrusher to get that topend sound.

it sounds like 808 samples or maybe that D16 808.

yes, we can all agree that they are 808-sounds, but they are processed, and in a way I have heard in other tracks aswell..and it is the processing I would like to know about, not the samples 8)

sounds like parallel compression to me.

Make a send on your 808 and put a compressor on the send with settings you may destruct your kick by taste... add the send a bit to your dry signal and you mostly get this kinda sound.
