Watch Stonebank (Monstercat) Discuss How Subpac Became Integral to his Work

We head back to Stonebank of Monstercat fame’s studio for another chat with him, this time about Subpac and how it has permeated his workflow. There are some great tips on how to make the most of them in music production here, so if you’ve recently bought one or are thinking about doing so, we recommend you take a look to get a better grip on how to use them usefully and sensibly, as well as turning it on and blasting out your subbiest track at full volume. We have a load of Subpacs at our London school which are available for anyone studying our production courses to use.

Stonebank is one of those producers who pumps out tracks for the sheer fun of it, making Electro, Hardcore, EDM, Tap and much more. We saw a bit of his process with his recent masterclass on making lead sounds, but one thing he didn’t discuss was the use of a Subpac to help him mix bass sounds. Here he goes into detail about how the rumbling, bass-responsive unit helps him emulate how bass and in particular sub-bass are going to sound in a club environment, reducing the risk of something sounding wrong when tested at a gig. They’re great machines and we love hearing about how people make the most of them.
