Editing Ambiences on the Mac Oklahoma City OK

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.

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.
