    Creating Massive Deep bassed Percussion

    Hey Everybody. I'd like to create stuff like this: http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/indi...ml?showVideo=1
    But don't know how to create these fantastic deep reverberating beats.
    Does anybody have experience in this, and would like to guide me through this process? I'm working with the TrueStrike series of Projects Sam. And planning on using the Grand Cassa.
    Thanks for your time anyway.

    The Grand Cassa might get you the low rumble but probably not the crunch.
    Now possibly adding a marching snare to the sound would get you closer, and then some early reflections in a good reverb even closer still, but typically this stuff is done with specific libraries that are aimed at the Hollywood thunder drum sound.

    One of the first Libraries really aimed at this ( I suspect ) was "Storm Drum" and I wouldn't be surprised if the drums in the clip you linked to were Storm Drum with some extra processing.

    Hopefully someone else will chime in with some more info.

    I am working on a library with only those extra boom sounds and swishes.

    You need first good samples, then a good reverb and good plugins like the "Waves-Maxx-Bass" to get deep and deeper sounds.

    As important as the samples are, so is the reverb. Larry Seyer sampled an aircraft hanger as a GigaPulse impulse. That one works pretty well.

    Hey Guys,
    Thanks for all the help.
    I'm using Altiverb and PSP bass editors.
    Gonna check out the drums of war. And love to be updated about the upcomming booms and swishes!......
    Just checked out the cinesamples and Nine volt. But do think the TS1 ensemble hits with some Maxx bass Waves editting will do fine.

    i don't have any demos off the op of my head, but i've achieved some pretty WOW results with cheap libraries that came with Logic Studio by using effects like different reverbs while adjusting the wet/dry signal. I'm sure you could do more with other effects. I've also heard of people just lower the tuning on certain drums to get deep sounds. Maybe even couple the drums (one deep and one crisp). It takes a lot more work then buying True Strike, but you really can get some impressive sounds if you take the time.

    You are right, Keith.

    One can sit ten and much more hours only on one sound... .
