how do you make this sound?

Post by tommy182145 » Thu Jan 29, 2015 4:41 pm

At 0:40 in this track there is that powerfull bassy effect that makes everything almost silent. For so long I've tried to achieve it but I can't. Could someone please give me some tips? I would appreciate it so much. Also how do you make this sound when you're mixing live as transition to another track?

Yeah its just bass drop... Probably some videos on youtube for it. But you want to use Operator with just a sine wave. Turn the pitch envelope on and adjust it so it starts at a higher pitch (to your taste) and the envelope drops right down. Probably want to play around with the pitch envelope and the time parameters so you can make it as long or as short a drop as you like.
