Tutorial: The Drake filter sweep effect

In the following tutorial we’ll show you how easy it is to replicate the filter sweep effect Drake uses in a lot of his music. It’s sort of that underwater effect that many artists like Big Sean, The Weeknd, Party Next Door and Bryson Tiller have adopted into their sound. This is also commonly referred to as the OVO sound. 

We’ll be demonstrating the Drake filter sweep technique using Logic X, however the effect can be adapted to any DAW using a standard EQ plugin.

  1. I’ve learned quite a bit from your tutorials, much appreciated. I like the pad sound in this one, what synth did you use to make it? If you could make a tutorial on the techniques you use to get these pads to sit well in the mix, that would be awesome.
