    Hey all,

    So I’m recording an instrumental cover of this for someone and have the synth parts down (programmed from scratch!) but I just can’t program the crash sound heard at :08 here:

    It’s played on the “4” of each measure of the main riff.

    I have Serum, Massive, and Sylenth1 at my disposal. Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated. i’ve done all the other instruments and my deadline to provide the music is coming up!

    also, if you recommend any drum libraries for the actual drum sound itself, happy to take suggestions!

    Try this:

    Noise: A simple white noise will do

    Amp Envelope: First use the Decay and Sustain to create a sharp attack transient to get an aggressive clap feel. Bring the Sustain down close to zero, and make the Decay really quick. Then crank up the Volume. Then increase the Release. Now play a short note. It should have an aggressive start, with a medium-length tail like the recording.

    Filter: Lowpass, 24 dB slope. Give it a decent amount of Res, and then bring the Cutoff down until it starts to get the same shape. You’ll have to tweak both the Cutoff and Res to get it just right.

    Distortion: Bring in some nice warm Tube-style distortion to make sure it’s loud enough and more aggressive. But not enough that it starts to break up and get gritty. We just want some oomph here.
