Now add some congas and a triangle by listening to the originaland trying to copy the parts. Try to find a place in the original where just the beat is playing – near the beginning is a good place to look.
Here we’ve added a low conga part and a separate high conga part so we can control the levels separately. We’ve sent the two separate parts to Buss 1 and placed a short reverb on the buss so it will affect the two parts as one. Use predelay to enable the sound to cut through, yet blend with the rest of the parts. Compress to taste. For the triangle part, again reference the original for the correct part and to get the pitch spot-on. Once you have it down, roll out as much bass as you can and add some extreme top to bring out the sparkle.
