    I will be recording a death metal band soon and they want the electronic "bass drops" and "backward, shimmering cymbal" sounds to accompany their music. Where can I get these sounds from?

    The guy at the local GC said that I need to buy the entire Battery program from Waves, however I am sure that there is a better way to them than that.

    Can someone please help me here? I do not want to lose the business of this band because I can not give them what they want for electronic sounds...

    Thanks so much!

    1a.) Record a cymbal crash/wash (or use a sample) with a full decay

    1b.) [Optional] Add a dense reverb with a smooth tail and print it to the original file

    2.) If you're using software, your host application will almost surely have a "reverse" function. If not, upload some files and I'll help you out.

    Thanks Patrick! I will be downloading those tomorrow for sure.

    Do you know Cubase SX3? I have tried searching for a reverse function but had no luck in the past. It might be one of the ten-bagillion buttons that I have never used before, lol...
     
  4. Select the track, then click the "Audio" tab --> "Process" --> "Reverse"

    oh yeah!

    I use the reverse cymbal thing all the time.

    Just like Pat said, Record the crash add the verb and reverse it. sometimes you can even add a phaser or flange for a really cool fade-in effect. Try not to overdue it though, keep it generally in the back with a guitar fading in with it...

    Sounds like heaven to me!
