Creating a Deep House Track from Intimate Noise Free Samples

Tutorial | Jul 20, 2019

In this video, I take samples from the Intimate Noise page and try to create a track. I download the free sample pack and explore the different folders, including pads and drones, one shots, and sequences. I start by using the kick samples and creating a drum loop. Then, I incorporate some of the pad samples to add texture to the track. I manipulate the sounds using different effects and plugins, such as the Hornet plugin and the Sonable smart compressor. I also create a baseline using the notes provided by the pad sample. I continue to build the track by adding more elements, including chords, FX sounds, and melodies. I use a pitch shifter and random modulators to add character and variation to the sounds. I group the different elements together and apply sidechain compression using the kick drum to create a pumping effect. Finally, I do a quick mastering using the Allzone Elements tool to ensure the track reaches the desired loudness. Overall, the goal is to create a deep house track using the samples from the Intimate Noise sample pack.

[00:00:00] Hey, welcome back to another video.
[00:00:08] In this video I want to try and create a track from samples from the page Intimate Noise.
[00:00:17] They just released yesterday I think a free sample pack.
[00:00:21] You can download it and all you need to know is that you have to actually subscribe to
[00:00:28] the newsletter to get the sample pack.
[00:00:31] But when you download it you have three folders here, pads and drones, one shots and sequences.
[00:00:41] I want to try and create something.
[00:00:44] The link to the page will be in the description below.
[00:00:50] Let's listen to the samples what we have here.
[00:01:10] So we already have some kicks we can use.
[00:01:13] That's nice.
[00:01:20] And it could be a nice loop for a fun house track or something like this.
[00:01:46] Let's try this.
[00:01:53] So what speed is it?
[00:01:58] Let's switch to raw.
[00:02:00] We have the real speed.
[00:02:20] Looks like it's 120 already.
[00:02:28] Let's try one of these kick drums here.
[00:02:44] Okay, let's try this.
[00:03:04] Okay.
[00:03:19] That sounds nice.
[00:03:39] Maybe let's duplicate this drum loop here and we use some of the heads inside this loop.
[00:04:05] We use this here and just duplicate again.
[00:04:21] And in this track use the heads.
[00:04:58] I switched this up.
[00:05:19] Yeah, maybe let's try to bring up the transients with the transient control.
[00:05:44] Something like this.
[00:05:51] Okay, let's see if we have some nice drones and pets here.
[00:06:01] Okay, that sounds nice.
[00:06:07] I like it.
[00:06:22] Maybe let's try the reverse function here.
[00:06:47] Yeah, and I use one of this hornet plugin here, which says which notes are used in the
[00:07:04] pet at C and A, which is pretty nice because we can now use the A as a baseline.
[00:09:00] I think that sounds okay.
[00:09:59] So we have a nice foundation for how see a deep house track.
[00:10:06] She's so well.
[00:10:08] Let's group up these, um, these drums here.
[00:10:13] Call it drums.
[00:10:16] And we have the base and the drum and the base together.
[00:10:28] This is percussion.
[00:10:32] We bring it in here.
[00:10:40] Let's use a compressor on other drums.
[00:10:52] I also tend to like to use the smart compressor by Sonable, which I made a video about some
[00:11:16] weeks ago.
[00:11:20] It tries to find the right parameters just by listening to the material.
[00:11:35] And I think it's, um, the result is pretty nice.
[00:11:44] Just go again, go and use the parameters here, the smart confound and use it in the between
[00:11:51] compressor.
[00:11:52] So we have a threshold of minus 30 DB ratio of 2.2.1.
[00:12:04] Okay.
[00:12:08] The attack is 41.
[00:12:22] And we have a release of 91.
[00:12:31] So we can basically hide this.
[00:12:47] Okay.
[00:13:14] Now we use the smart comp on the drum and bass boss.
[00:13:30] Okay.
[00:13:44] And we make the sequence a bit longer here.
[00:13:50] Use the same baseline and what I switch up the pet sound here, because it's pretty static.
[00:13:58] I make a small, small change.
[00:14:46] Let's develop it further.
[00:15:15] And maybe change the pet again.
[00:15:24] Just a slightly better.
[00:16:28] Something's missing here.
[00:16:53] I think there needs to be another chord.
[00:17:52] Let's use one of these pitch shifters here, which I showed in the last video.
[00:18:52] I think the fiddle is okay.
[00:19:08] Small low pass.
[00:19:27] Let's see what we can find also here on the FX section.
[00:20:13] Let's take this.
[00:21:05] Now we can use this as an riser.
[00:21:15] A bit quieter.
[00:21:27] Can you use this too?
[00:21:37] Maybe cut all the low end out.
[00:21:44] There's a bit of freebob.
[00:22:11] I think it's time for the pet and this is, what's this?
[00:22:22] Oh yeah, the clap.
[00:22:27] Let's move the clap into the drums and use this as FX group and group everything.
[00:22:41] Together and call it all.
[00:22:46] And then we go and duplicate this.
[00:22:50] So we have another four bars of content.
[00:23:06] I let's try and modulate the cut off of the low pass filter.
[00:23:11] Yeah.
[00:23:12] A bit.
[00:23:13] So there's a bit of movement at the end we go.
[00:23:23] And then we're going to remove the
[00:23:47] cut off.
[00:23:59] Something like this.
[00:24:09] Just bring in some bit of movement.
[00:24:12] There's a small bit of development audible.
[00:24:19] And okay.
[00:24:21] What's now?
[00:24:24] What now?
[00:24:26] Oh yeah.
[00:24:32] Let's create some pulleys and to have some kind of lead sound or a bit of character.
[00:24:42] So we are on A.
[00:25:03] And lots of free rope.
[00:25:22] Okay.
[00:25:38] And at one of these random modulators here.
[00:26:08] Moving to 100% and then we modulate some stuff.
[00:26:14] I'll go with the pitch.
[00:29:47] So I'm going to change the loop here and maybe I change one of the nodes.
[00:30:39] Connect this and yeah, maybe let's join this and bounce it out.
[00:30:48] Postfader.
[00:31:04] So now change this a bit and use scale 50%.
[00:31:33] So we have now the same loop but just shorter or time stretched if you will.
[00:31:41] So it's playing the double the speed and we layer it on top of the original sequence.
[00:33:02] So now we bounce this too.
[00:33:15] Like maybe go also with time stretched again.
[00:33:43] Okay.
[00:33:58] So now this part is backwards.
[00:34:16] Okay maybe we need some heads somewhere.
[00:34:42] Maybe a bit of shuffle would be nice.
[00:34:50] So we go to the quantizer and add a bit of shuffle.
[00:35:10] Too much.
[00:35:33] I added would be nice if we can just raise the decay at the end here.
[00:35:37] So let's do this.
[00:36:02] And also the width.
[00:36:21] Okay.
[00:36:38] Let's train try and add one of the minor chords.
[00:36:47] Oh okay.
[00:37:06] Ah let's scrap that.
[00:37:27] I don't need this.
[00:38:48] At the end we switch to upwards.
[00:39:09] Maybe this.
[00:39:12] Down.
[00:39:44] Let's record the cutoff here.
[00:40:10] Oh that's a cutoff.
[00:40:34] So let's call this melodia.
[00:40:53] So we don't need the melody everywhere.
[00:41:17] Just in a part of the track.
[00:41:36] Okay.
[00:41:48] Let's move to the side chain.
[00:42:05] So we have audio side chain here and use the kick drum.
[00:42:12] DPE drums as the kick.
[00:42:17] That's the kick.
[00:42:24] So every time the kick plays we go down in the volume.
[00:42:40] And we duplicate this to every bass.
[00:42:53] And maybe group this to.
[00:42:58] So this is the kick here.
[00:43:01] And use also this volume tool on the bass and on the tops here.
[00:43:12] So the kick drum now, um, ducks every other channel.
[00:43:28] So now a small bit of quick mastering.
[00:43:51] So use the all zone elements tool because it's pretty small.
[00:43:57] They are not all modules available, just the image or equalizer, but what I turned everything
[00:44:03] off and I'd only use the maximizer and we have this learn threshold function here at
[00:44:08] the bottom.
[00:44:10] And I use minus 10 loves and it analyzes the signal and then tries to find the right threshold
[00:44:17] tool hit exactly the right target volume or loudness.
[00:44:37] So.
[00:45:12] I have just headphones.
[00:45:29] I can't say if I'm in the right loudness with all the frequencies, but I think you get it.
[00:45:58] Maybe you can use.
[00:46:27] Um, the percussion is just fun.
