How to Sound Like (Earlier) French House

I want to know how to sound like earlier french house aka filter house. Essentially it’s just use of low pass filter sweeps and sharp percussion that sounds like a drum machine. But they always add small touches like a little background synth or a bassline that kills that I always find touch to “match” it into the song without making it be a clashy mess.

You can make it very subtle and use either a gate or sidechain compression. Keep it low though and use a high pass filter to get rid of the low frequencies so it doesnt clash with your bass and kick.

Word that sounds like a good plan. Now just gotta find a good hi-pass filter.

Just use Abletons included filter. I still use that over everything else.
