The Secret to Getting Your Drums to Hit Harder

In this video, I’m going to show you how to use clipping or distortion to make your kick samples hit harder. This can be applied to other elements in your tracks as well. I recommend you experiment with the stuff I’m going over in the video so you can get a better grasp of what’s happening. Be sure to use SPAN or some sort of spectrum analyzer to get a visual representation of what’s actually happening. Hope this video is helpful.
