164 - Badass 808 kicks        

From: Lindsey Williams
Email: lindsey@usa.net
Date: 24-Apr-00


ever wondered how those gangsters give their 808 kicks that `whaabbbbboom' sound ? Well I'm not going to give the secret away but i'll tell you how to do it. Play the clean kick through the line in of an old BSR or Gerrard record player ( you can get these from the car boot sales for £5 ) over load it till the power light dims a bit. Stick a 10 k resistor on the speaker out - take the output into a soundcard/sampler. Now, sit back and think about how you would even start to do this with an korg electribe. (secret is that those shit old 78rpm record decks have 100watt valve amps in them, you might be unfortunate enough end up with one where the tubes are loosing their vacuaum but that will make the kicks sound even more tribal ;-[]_
