Re: Zomboy Sound Design....Similar. NOT THE SAME.

That is probably the coolest synth on the outbreak ep. It shares a metallic property with the terror squad bass, and the envelope or performer setting used sounds very similar as well, but the immunity bass sounds a lot more textured and interesting to me. it could very well be a similar patch where...

Re: The Official Growl Bass Thread

Great thread. Learned a ton from this in the past few months. The Seamless FM8 tutorial is great as well for those looking to do fm8 growls. I think the real magic is in the automation. I've come up with some pretty decent (i think) and very vocal growl basses using fm8 with just sin waves and a few...

Re: Sub Bass Trouble

Best sub bass advice I've read is to low cut everything, use a pure sine, have it sit a few DB under the bass. A great trick for getting your sub bass and kick to play well is to use a Low Pass Filter (Steep cut off, -24 or 48db) on your master and listen to what is happening down there. Import some...
