Does anybody know how to get this 'underwater' bassy synth sounding drums? I'd much appreciate it!
Of course! Hans Zimmers Zebra 2 (Dark Zebra) has a lot of patches that sound similar to this.
It's extremely easy to create a patch in Zebra 2 or Massive, using Performers/Steppers with the Cutoff. Choose a waveform that sounds suitable to your liking, add some reverb and some Delay. Delay takes an important part in these sort of sounds because it really enhances the rhythm in a patch (I like to think so anyway...)
Try using dotted rhythms along with a common rhythm: Left: 1/8. and Right: 1/8.... or experiment!
It's extremely cool how easy this sound is to make, it's just tweaking little tiny parameters and it completely makes the sound much better if you just keep tweaking until you hear it right.
