I don't want to hear about how much you hate trap.
Also, do you mean crashes only? Or rides and hats too? As far as I can tell the defining factor for trap cymbals is hats in 1/16th that occasionally double time to 1/32.
My Latest Track:
You know what i am referring to, i am not trying to make trap. Just interested in the drum placement mang.Sinestepper wrote:You dont have to put cymbals in a certain place to make a song "trap".
Like the pitch movement on toms, and tom/cymbal placement, ect.
Like :34 the cymbals start
people on this forum really need to start being more helpful and less snobby. It's becoming more of a clubhouse and less of a place where people can just come together and exchange knowledge
Toms like in the intro here, sounds like they are just pitched around.
Dont hate on the song choices btw, best examples i could think of on the spot.

OH MY GAD I FUCKING HATE TR- oh. Yes, that wouldn't be very helpful.outdropt wrote:I don't want to hear about how much you hate trap.
I don't care for it, but yeah I'm intrigued by the hats as well.
Kit seems to be on the right track. It seems like it's just a straight beat that's got fast, flowing hats. Each time I've tried to throw something together though it just sounds stupid, so it's probably more complicated than it originally sounds. It'll probably require a decent amount of trial and error.Kit Fysto wrote:This is what I do and it works well for this kind of stuff. Get a kick snare pattern first. The put hi hats on every 1/8note. Turn that shit up, smoke some weed and move shit around and make cool little sections until you think it sounds tight. Little flams, triplets, whatever the hell you want. It's just gotta flow. That is the only rule. Make it flow
Also, attaching pitch to velocity and doing slight pitch ups/downs during fills could sound really cool, and I think that's actually what they tend to do (it's a lot more obvious with the snare fills).
Yeah the triplets add some change in the rhythm that really adds to the feel of the beat.drake89 wrote:on songs i like i notice cymbals at 1/4, hats at 1/8, 1/16, and 1/8T. some of the wierd feel can be from switching between 1/16 and 1/8T(riplet). it's wierd cause 1/8T is actually faster than 1/16.
Also fast 32's on the ... Offbeat?.... really adds some intensity.
like 2/32, 4/32, 6/32, 8/32
