Hello wondering anyone has a Good Combo or what suggestions for getting a Great Tight Solid 808 Boom Sound with awesome low end that can be heard in large and smaller speakers that You Hear in todays Popular South Music!!

Any Suggestions here for using Nebula to acheive this or if not which plugin combo would work 3rd party...??

here is example song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2MVzP4MaJ0

I'm sure some will not like this music but we have to mix, need some input on getting this type of sound from the 808 Boom...

Thanks for any help!
:)

Personally I love the Globe Console (CDSoundmaster) for its handling of low-end heavy program material.

I think you could get "that sound" with most (if not all) of the Nebula libraries; the real key to getting a particular sound is knowing what you're doing, most audio tools have enough range to accomplish multiple tasks. Understanding how to use the particular libraries you do own already is far more important than a laundry list of the libraries some of the rest of use. Honestly, it's not one Nebula library or another that's going to get you to that point, it's general knowledge of mixing kick drums and a good starting point in terms of which of your Nebula programs do what.

That's the answer... Everything's said ...
Oh and know your Hip Hop history ... dig in the 30+ years of culture listen and learn ...

Good luck.

Hi Ngarjuna, This is very intresting! I produce/Mix Drum and Bass and am always in search for tools to control and enhance the low end elements of my work! I use the CLC for console emulation,i like the punch and depth it brings to the low-mids! What is it about the Globe you like when it comes to bass heavy material? Im in the market for a new console and your comment about the Globe sounds right up my streeet :mrgreen:

The frequency curve. I am not entirely sure what it's doing to be honest (where it cuts and/or boosts) but I find that starting with that (as opposed to whatever console I'm generally emulating on the rest of my tracks) I save myself a whole bunch of eq'ing down the line. I wasn't in love with the full mixes I did with Globe when I was comparing consoles on various mixes around here but it's just the trick for certain things so it gets used very regularly; when you have TNT, GLB, CLC, VBC, MWC, MBC, BBC, Bogen (I know, I have a problem) to choose from, it's saying something that the Globe is used in a good majority of my mixes, albeit rarely as a full console emulation.

CDsoundmaster's website seems to be down at the moment (maybe they're refreshing content) so I'm not sure if there's a demo program but definitely check it out if there is.
