been a while since I've been through here. Anyways, I just started working on something that's got some reeses in it.

If anybody wants to know about anything in there I can try to post some stuff.

Thats great dude. The stuff from 0.45 to like 0.49 is mental! And also some of the little reverbed reese hits at some points in the drop. Could you walk us through how you made that?
Would be great!

Something I made out of boredom, not spectacular but i was just messing around (No post processing) https://www.dropbox.com/s/vcxushmsbiskeo1/Reesework.mp3

Something from a track we're working on that sounds far better than the other one i'm posting

Image

The heavily modulated synth from the drop was made in fm8-> using the above operators

Image

This is what the master section looks like,portamento on, added a voice and detuned it a bit

Image

I used FM8's overdrive and some reverb here.

Image

These are the outside effects I used, you don't need fabfilter saturn necessarily, I just used their generic "saturation" setting alongside some fruity overdrive and threw it into the vocodex.

Image

from there, I put it into kontakt. These steps can be done without Kontakt, but the effects kontakt has are really what give it its sound so it will be hard to replicate what I have without it. anyways, this pic just shows that I spread the sample into 2 voices detuned by 50% and I am using a bandpass and a notch filter, respectively

Image

I used kontakts chorus first, then tape distortion, then 2 instances of transistor distortion, some lofi distortion (bitcrusher, but just to add some high end crunch, not to "yoi" it up) , and finally some reverb

Image

This is what makes the sound here-> the modulation. I would love to say that I planned all the modulation, but really I just had and idea in mind and played around until I heard something that I liked. The gist is that there is an sine LFO modulating the cutoff of the bandpass filter, and an envelope controlling the cutoff of the notch filter. ***tip-> if you want to make an entire bassline with something like this, assign lfo's and envelopes to modulate the frequency of the original lfo, ( i didn't do this because I only used the synth for a short clip)

Image

I then once again used fabfilters generic "basic saturation" setting (this can be done using any saturation plugin like fruity waveshaper), added a bit of compression so the sound is still dynamic but not to peaky at times, and added an exciter to bring out the lowend a bit-> i am pretty sure the "modern exciter" plugin is free and I use it all the time.

That's it in a nutshell, I'll try to answer any other questions as best I can. Also, I'm not that cryptic about my sounds so if anybody wants the fm8 and or the kontakt file I would be more than happy to send it (provided someone is willing to tell me how to post it online).

I've noticed the trend has been to re-sample through harmor to achieve the trippy neuro-style reese bass. Does anybody use a different method/sampler/synthesizer to achieve these similar results? I know alchemy is a hybrid additive synth/sampler. Is there any reason that doesn't get used for this process?

My apologies if this is a silly question - I'm a total noob here.

Been a while since I have been on this forum.

Here is a reese I made today using what I believe is being called 'sine compression,' this essentially consists of running a sine wave through lots of compressors until it becomes extremely distorted, then applying some effects/filters before and after this compression chain.

Enjoy :)

I don't remember how I processed this bass, but I do remember that I made it in Synpase Antidote in Reason 7. I mainly posted this just to flaunt off my reese, whether or not it's good or bad. I made it with intentions of getting it pretty close to a Virus reese.

Anyways, the Antidote parameters are:
C2 note
Osc 1:
Analog Saw - Count 3
Detune - about halfway
Spread - Maybe 20% or so

Osc 2:
Pulse - Count 3
Modifier - 50% so it's a square
Detune - about halfway
Spread - 10%-40%

LFO on Filter Cutoff w/ an amount of roughly 60+

Low cutoff.

That should get you started. :4:

Insane, how!?! Yeah, you said sine comp. How did you filter it?
And what dist settings did you use?

on the reese i used:

Parmetric EQ 2 set to bandstop then automated the band to sweep. got taught that from this thread :)
other eq is for cutting the bass and some mids for the sub and snare.

monstachorus, which is always my go-to plugin for reeses. i just find it gives them a nice width. no automation for that though.

bifilter 2 set to diffuser 32x, I automated this to come on and off, and automated the cutoff cause its a weird as fuck effect but in small doses it worked well with pitch bending the reese.

Camelphat, standard bit of mech, tube and bit crusher.

Fruity flanger, again always for me on reeses....automate the wet knob on a fairly normal flanger gives you lots of control over the sound.

the little secret with this, was an old sample of a reese i ran through dblue glitch. i chopped that up and added it underneath everything. just ran a reese through glitch on random settings so there was some stuttering, modulation etc

the other bass sound is a massive patch i made, kinda of Kutz type bass. That gives the kind of stuttery effect.

theres the reese and the effects chain: (the fruity lp is doing nothing)
Image

the rest was just fucking about really. a lot of happy accidents :lol:
