    Hey,

    I have recently gotten into sampling and I want to make my drums and samples sound more grimey. I am looking for some type of grimey effects like mobb deep style(hell on earth). I know some use vinyl samples to help with it but i was wondering what other types of effects i can put on my drums or samples through to make em grimey. thanks for help

    get an old sampler......

    eps classic or eps 16+

    thats exactly what havok used to use......

    honestly....you can try to "emulate" the sound of those machines but it wont ever really sound the same without introducing some analog distortion......so if your not gonna use an old sampler.......use an old guitar amp or some shit.....or a guitar effects processor

    Yeah - theres ways you can try to do it in software.. but the oldschool samples are straight to the point.

    And they cheap - in fact im peepin an ASR or EPS rack...just for that purpose.


    But grimey beats - usually are as grimey as the sample too...so pick them dark joints

    record it to a cassette, yeah thats right, a old 80's cassette. and then record it back into your computer.

    if u have a mic, try to put it to your speakers and record your drums from the speakers. that might give it a pretty grimey sound.

    Well tape in general does wonders for the sound.

    Scream on reason does a good job.

    so if ill learn that when i get older. that means you are significantly older than me i assume. which means your a grown ass man asking stupid questions like these. in highschool i bet you was in the class with them wheelchair slots and kids beating they chest.

    gotta go with an old sampler......and premize is right that you do gotta use some grimey samples to begin with.....but the sampler does most of the magic......a new sampler that does a good job of emulating older machines is the sp606 by roland......

    truncating to 12-bit sounds nothing like sampling in at 12-bit in the first place. Your just fuckin up the sound when u do that. ull never get that eps sound in a comptier

    lol i love how u guys jus toss around the word grimey
    like its an instrument
    i need a paino sample
    i need a grimey sample.




    it really all starts off with ur sounds
    "grimey" drums are usually like filtered to not sound so bright
    meaning to sound a bit lower quality maybe

    you might wanna try adding some distortion

    and if ur using mp3s
    try getting the mp3 at a lower bit rate

    say

    192 would be the best quality so maybe like 96 or 64 kps (u can convert the bit rates using something like Adobe, Cool Edit Pro)


    erm other than that iunno it all really depends on the sample.

    you cant ask how to make a beat sound grimey

    you just gotta BE GRIMEY

    if you gotta ask then i guess you aint grimey so look for another sound in your music, because a "grimey" sound most likey doesnt fit your image as an artist.
