A Quick Tip – Getting Wide By TeeBee

Legendary Drum and Bass producer, TeeBee, shares a quick tip on getting things sounding wide

A simple way to get wide is to pan a sound hard right/left and change the pitch on each side -12/+12 %. Then sum up the two parts on a bus, mono check to avoid phase issues, and then dial in stereo field to taste. I sometimes put a centre one in too and blend to taste. With mono drums, bounce short wet reverbs and cut and  layer on source sounds to match waveform/blend to taste (I say cut as reverb tails tend to mud mix, and if you want wide, creating side info is the way to go). Most perceived width is created from 800hz and upwards so spread your tops really wide.”

FREE DOWNLOAD UNTIL 31ST DECEMBER – THE ESTEY REED ORGAN

This great Kontact Player Organ is avilable for FREE download until the 31st Dec.

The organ recorded appears to be a high-top Grand Salon Organ, dating from around the turn of the 19th century. It is played, as you might expect, by pumping the two foot pedals alternately, to force air through the reed mechanism. It requires some technique, and no small amount of effort to keep a strong, even tone from the instrument.
