Bass design help please

Post by ChrisMack99 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 10:12 pm

Can anyone help me figure out how to create one of my favorite types of bass?

The low bass that sounds like someone making an O sound with their mouth. It hits right at 1:00 the first time and then starts every phrase for a while.

I have Ableton suite, Massive, and Absynth to use.

Rather than have someone tell you, the best way for you to learn about how synths work, and what controls affect the sound in which ways, is to play around.

Load a sound that's near to what you're after, and then adjust the controls and see how it changes the sound.

You'll learn more that way than just following someone's instructions.

formant filtering can get you that mouth-ish sound. massive has some wavetables that have vocal/formant modulations already in them...check out e.g. modern talking or gentle speech. back that up with a bass-ier oscillator, assign a knob to both wavetable position and filter cutoff at the same time, and get your brostep wobble on.

Yes, but in this case I don't have a sound that sounds anything like what I'm going for.
