How to layer and process sounds – Beat Maker Series

Layer and process sounds on BandLab tutorial

How do you layer and process sounds on BandLab for bigger, more powerful tracks?

One of the easiest ways to make your tracks sound richer is to layer sounds. It’s simple – combine two or more of the same type of sounds to get something more powerful and complex. But there are other tricks to achieve a smoother result, and that involves processing each sound so they work better in tandem with each other.

In this video tutorial, we’ll show you a few techniques you can use to make your track bigger and better just by layering, processing, and resampling in BandLab’s web Mix Editor. Best of all, it’s completely free. You’ve got everything you need to start making music – you just need a web browser.

Fork the beat we created in the video tutorial below. You can use this beat as the baseline to start your own project, or continue layering over it for something even wilder!
