Where should we start XD?

Perhaps by discussing what “Trap” music is, because sometimes people either don’t know a genre or have different views?

Yes, got tons of tips n tricks

  1. Make sure to get that loud sub bass and side chain everything to it (using the kick ducker)

  2. Put a LOT, I mean a LOT of triplet hi-hats

  3. Put a Snareclap on every third beat

  4. Vary your kick patterns to match your sub bass

  5. Listen to lots of trap songs to find that perfect trap snareclap

  6. Focus on the beat and less on the melodics

Listen to other people’s trap and find how to make a good baseline.

Bass matters just as much as melody.

(We can also collab on it if you’d like)

This is just trap drums over a very basic piano melody

Don’t forget the bass! Also remember reverb, and ducker. I added all that to the project here:

Also took the pitch automation off of everything except he hi-hats, and added a snare roll. Just some small things that can help it sound better
