Kinky bass sound

Post by kraku » Sun Jan 02, 2011 3:08 pm

I just accidentally learned that you can create cool bass sounds this way:

1. Take two pulse oscillators; one pitched 2 octaves above the other.
2. Use vibrato on the LOWER oscillator.
3. Use slew limiting / glide on the HIGHER oscillator.
4. Add a little bit of low pass filter to taste (even with saturation if you wish).

Here's the result:
weird bass test

Whenever I used glide and/or vibrato on my sounds, they were always used on all oscillators. Actually I almost never used vibrato on bass sounds. This is one of the very first times and now it's (against my intuition and knowledge of "how to make a good bass sound") used on the LOWER oscillator. Blasphemy! :omg:

But it sounds good to my ears :nana: :bananaguitar:
