    Default Learning from the 808 and 909 bassdrum boom.

    Here's an interesting picture: It's the 808 bassdrum boom.



    The classic 808 BD sounds and feels like like crazy low bass but in fact it's only down to 45Hz with most of the energy centered around 50 - 75Hz. Not as hard to reproduce as you might think, even with moderately cheapo speakers. Which is probably why it's so popular a sound to use and riff from!

    Moral: Concentrate your bass energy in the 50Hz-75Hz range and you'll sound golden on most soundsystems.

    +1, but I find that more often than not Fatlimey's posts give me a headache. I mean that in the most respectful way possible. It's just painfully obvious your smarter than I am, but I can make a mean tamale so I think we're even.
