    Found the scratch samples, thanks for the jnfo. Also you're probably right, the more I listen to the transition it just sounds like the volume automation on the bass contributes substantially to the hugeness of it.

    I managed to make a similar sounding woosh out of a loud kick drum sample reversed and duplicated too.

    Can somebody explain what the sound that appears at 0:35 is?

    Not sure. I really don't know much about the origin of any of the pad-based samples other than stuff that happens to get mentioned in the occasional interview.

    I was just listening to that song in train and I remembered I saw this question... The first thing that came to mind for that intro hits would be a kick layered with a clap (at least for a start) and then distortion as somebody else already mentioned and who knows what else. I'm not very experienced with the sound design so I doubt I could recreate it. If you try it and it works, please let me know.

    I see I'm very late in answering this but i learned that Mike used a Roland GAIA SH-01 synth to create the intro to Burn it Down. If you're interested, the keyboard samples used live are uploaded here https://mega.nz/#F!0YMWzayL!6SzVtKepSHJ3QLHiZhzMvQ!kdUShQZL

    Hey everyone, I am just realizing that i uploaded the wrong sample files for the Burn it Down Kontakt patch. These files were recorded to loud and have clipping in them. I have uploaded the correct samples to the same folder on Mega titles GaiaOrgan (New BID) Samples. These are the actual samples Mike used to perform BURN IT DOWN live. Enjoy! :) https://mega.nz/#F!UI0zBQbb!XO9-gbjBJnj20MXozHlR-A

    I think you could get pretty close just by pitching up a distorted drum sound. Like an 8-bit snare or something like that. Make it really high in pitch and you get that scratch. Add some reverb to taste.

    It's said that Shinoda did unspeakable things in the studio bathroom to create those iconic sounds that catapulted Linkin Park to stardom and won them a Grammy Award ... :ph34r:

    It’s the sound of LP fans flushing down the toilet their ability to agree on anything :kappa:

    Wouldn't surprise me if it is. During his streams he Pretty much admited to using samples he likes more than once (strings at the end of Cure for the Itch *cough*)

    Pretty sure its a chord run through a HOG pedal and then loaded into an MPC for further tweaking and playing later on. Its Pretty much like the one on Wretches

    Also this isn't quite a "how did they make that Sound" but does anybody know who the kid at the end of Keys for the Kingdom is and who is speaking at the end of The Summoning?
