David Bowie 'Low' Drum Sound

US Eventide H-910 pivotal pitch effect      18/12/22

Recreating full tracks and individual elements from classic songs is always a great method of learning. Here we have a run down of the 'Low' drum sound, from David Bowie's album released in 1977 which was produced by Tony Visconti. The snare sound is very particular in that it uses the Eventide H-910 to pitch the (already tuned up) snare sound down, giving it a mean and other worldly weight. A great tip to isolate one element for fx and defy conventional processing!
