How to create Requake/Badklaat/fable-like sound?

Post by soundshifter » Sat Oct 08, 2011 3:21 pm

Ok, so I can create allready some basic wobbles and stuff. The problem is that I don't want to use the regular wobbles ( I don't want my song to sound like a Skrillex song). I am really into the more underground dubstep like requake, badklaat, fable, Vylex etc. Problem is I don't know how to create sounds like in the songs of these producers. Can anybody please help? Fable- Dark Planet is a good example of what sound I have in mind. Also requake - damage control, vylex - AL, Badklaat- sub assault etc. It would be like really great if someone could show a picture of the parameters.
Greeting,

FX FX, moar FX my friend! You'll also find that assigning the LFO to more than just the LP filter can help.

For example, that Dark Planet sound sounds like it could have mod on the resonance, and I wouldn't even bank on him using an LFO, instead assigning a mod envelope to the filter and just setting it to short so pressing the key one does one 'wub'.

This.

Its not a wobble per-say.. Its more of making a one-shot with modulations, filter/velocity triggered filter envelopes instead of a lfo > cut off then playing it traditionally like any other sound.

thats a good simple guide, sounds exactly like using subtraktor in Reason! kromestar and badklaat are Reason users, they make those wubs in the Subtraktor synth, but yeah it looks like its pretty dead simple to do in massive too ;)

yes... its about the arrangement imo.. badklaat squeezes those sounds in between his drums and samples for this ill syncopated grimy as fuck groove. the sounds don't strike me as the type that'll take days to create. they're great, but the badness is in the tunes' structure. I wonder more about how he does sub, bc its really fucking heavy

some of his tunes have this sub that's really weighty, pretty standard on the bottom but have a resonance to them, it doesn't sound like another layer. very attached to the sub line, but with subtle harmonics. still its the riffs he plays that really bring the badness

Yeah, I think the key to a lot of his tunes are simply composition and arrangement, he does it so well.

His subs really are prominent too. He's just one hell of a producer imo

nice one cheeky :)

Earjax, that tunes nice, but I think the bassline needs to be more prominent
