Help me pitch this hoover!

Post by Dubzilla » Mon Mar 10, 2014 2:23 pm

Hi guys, sorry I'm an idiot..I've been trying to get the offbeat hoover stab like in 1995 hardcore, so far I have chopped a hoover sample out of Mentasm and shortened it to a stab but I'm still having trouble pitching it. I'm honestly not sure what I'm supposed to be doing. I tried using audacity to pitch up the end part of the sample and it didn't sound right, then I tried pitching down the end part...still didn't sound right. tried raising it a few octaves and putting a 160bpm 909 kick drum underneath, sounded a little bit like some of the thunderdome gabber stuff but a little bit too moody and harsh

what am I doing wrong?? I'm keeping it simple because I know most stuff back then was just sampled and pitched, but I can't get the pitch right. once I can get this pitch right I'll be home free
