How To Make A Snare Sound


How To Make Snare

After a long hiatus from making tutorials, here’s finally a new video. It’s about how to make a snare sound using Sytrus.

There’s no text boxes this time, I’m just showing you how to.

The method is simple: I’m using Sytrus with two Operators. OP1 is for snap and body, OP2 for noise.

In the effect chain I’m using:

  • Fruity Fast Dist for distortion
  • PEQ2 for cutting lows and boosting some fundamental parts
  • Soundgoodizer for additional excitement
  • Another PEQ2 for cutting low frequencies even more after Soundgoodizer (plus some minor tweaking in the mid/high area)
  • Transient Processor for sharpening the attack part of the snare.

I also show you how the snare works in a simple mix (i.e in a ‘context’).
