The Making of Prodigy’s “Smack my Bitch Up”

Posted on July 20, 2011 by D' MacKinnon

Found this great video on YouTube today about the making of The Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up” and how you can reproduce the track using some samples and Ableton. Pretty crazy to see just how many samples went into the creation of this song, little snippets used here and there that the average person would never spot. The video is pretty spot on, I know that Liam used a Korg Prophecy run through an envelope filter (possible a wah pedal for this) for the acid bass line but here they show you how to accomplish the entire track strictly in software.

Keep watching, at the seven minute mark he shows the final track.
