    I posted this on the drumki from hell superior forum before realising here would be a better place to ask, :lol: :lol: :lol:

    On track 3 of the new cryptopsy at 1.48, they do this great sorta sonic boom thing where it sounds like everything is rumbling and distorting like all hell. Clip


    How the hell do i do this?:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I wanna use it on a track i'm rerecording!

    Thanks guys! :D

    I think you must have typed wrong, the link appears to be


    I had a listen on my very nasty laptop, couldn't really make out much on those speakers, I'll have a listen at the studio tomorrow and give you my take on it

    I think the " sonic boom" effect is from the horrendously overloaded example that you provided? Truly sounds like crap! It's just some additional bass guitar and bass drum, overloaded. Go have fun.

    So what, just boost everything right up and fade out?

    It's a cool effect, it just happens for that 1-2seconds in the song.

    Thanks, your advice is always appreciated!

    I would say to probably solo/isolate the bass and bass drum, mix a separate track of that. Then take that track, E. Q. it for heavier sub harmonics, insert that track into your nonlinear audio editing program, where you want it to appear and then fade it out at the appropriate time. What? No boom?

    Bam! Now my teeth are brighter too!

    LOL. I guess everyone has their likes and dislikes.

    That "sonic boom" is nothing more than distortion and to me is sounds like crap. It sounds like they just took the double bass and cranked it to oblivion.

    I'd like to hear the whole song though and see how it fits in.

    if anyone is interested, i discovered how flo (drums) actually does it.

    He's triggering a sample of a bomb going off by means of a pad on the right hand side of his kit.

    Again though, thanks for replies everyone ! I'm still gonna try your ideas out t see what i can sculpt from it!
