Fki 1$t - BASS DRUM
We teamed with Fki 1$t to bring you his signature 808 Bass Drum. 1st loves his bass with a very long decay and just enough harmonics to cut through.
It comes with 3 pads, for each you can set the pitch, length, level, filter and the glide mix. The glide mix was introduced in our BIGGIE bass, but here you can set it for each pads opening the door for interesting articulations. The Fki 1$t Bass Drum also comes with 42 presets and 4 engines.
TYPICAL USE OF THE FKI 1$T BASS DRUM
Contemporary hip hop 808.
1: level your sounds.
FKi 1$t produced an extravagant amount of platinum records, he is known to pay extra attention to the levels. To him, leveling is as important as designing the sound and more important than any processing. His instrument has a gain knob for each pad so you can even fine tune every pad’s level.
2: add some transient by layering.
This instrument is designed to produce mostly sustain, not much transient, so it could be layered with another pad playing a very short kick impact
