Editing Ambiences on the Mac Buffalo NY

Killer synth riffs and slammin' drums are key components of dance tracks, but if you want fans to wonder, 'How was that sound created?' you can get a lot of mileage from adding ambiences.

By taking natural sounds like forests and jungles, or industrial sounds like construction sites, you can add a layer of organic content that will give your tracks a truly unique sound.

From the main page, click on Free Sound Effects in the menu bar (free registration required).

  

KickLoop2. Drag this sound effect into a new track in your latest electronic opus, as I’ve done here in Ableton Live. In our online audio, we put the loop over a simple four-on-the-floor kick, so you can hear exactly what’s going on.

 

KickLooponebar3. With your ambience clip and drums in place, begin auditioning one-measure bits of the clip. Each single-bar segment has its own distinct rhythmic character. Spend some time finding one that really revs your engine, not just audio filler.
