"In terms of in-the-box effects, Arnalds is a great lover of UAD plug-ins, particularly the EMT 250 reverb and the Moog Multimode Filter. "I do a lot of side-chain filtering,” he says. "I might have a drum beat and send it out to an external bus as well with a filter and distortion and just layer that on top of the drum beat to give it a little bit more character and life. I like the Sound Toys Decapitator for distortion.”"more
I really don't like explaining things you really should just use & hear. Got a UAD product? 14 day trial is waiting for ya! No but considering? You can "kinda" get the feel from somewhere online (I'm assuming YouTube so low audio quality) but enough to get an idea. Just watch that low end!
