So Timbaland Did Me Dirty ( Beatclub - Jamie Starr Submission )

 So after being super active in Timbaland's beat club discord and discord... and stating in the chat that I really feel like timing and mood play into a lot of how he responds, I was feeling super confident in my material, Hell, 3 artists he's played and liked I've been in contact with for collaborations... So of course, I get to be the let's do one last one with Timbaland obviously in a rush  and over it saying he's gotta go before he gets cursed out... I get a few seconds, get a "wooo" out of zayd  and then immediately get the "go to sleep" song.  My only hope is Zayd lobbies for me to get a second  shot next stream, because I've seen him do that for people that come up against the end of the stream or  that Timbaland likes my Metapop submission and decides to at least wait for my beat to drop before  rendering judgment.  Honestly, it kinda motivates me even more that I was given such little time and just  sorta had no chance my vibe right

Samplepack Samples used : Kick Drum, Sub Kick, Snare, HiHats, Keys, & Strings I started by finding the key signature for the piano loop, slowing it down a bit and extracting the midi from it. From that midi I built all of my synth parts and the strings used on the outro. The panning synth lead that plays during the first half of the verse that was created in Riffer. The Strings loop from the soundpack is used during the hook, it's been tuned to Bb minor to match the keys and time-stretched a bit. There is also a layer of it that has been distorted to almost sound like a vocal. I created a kick pattern with the subkick and also extracted the midi from that and layered it with another sub from sublab. The vocal sample at the end is chords that are also built from using the keys midi in harmony engine. Most of the synth parts done with midi have been run through Outputs movement and Dada Life's endless smile to give them motion and create the transitions. The end of the track

Here is a look at what it takes to make the "Thumper" sound to be so distinct. We get into layering and tuning our drums to make them pop... Panning synth lines so they slide from speaker to speaker... Using a noise gate to side-chain deep sub-kicks for just the right amount of impact and so much more...
