FM8, uh if you can figure out how to modulate the right operator amounts using the right waveforms at the right ratios.. maybe. Shit ton of work tho more than it's worth, and you might not even get the exact sound.
LITERALLY that sound is Malstrom, and it's playing SPECIFIC wavetables so if you want to recreate it, you need those wavetables.

Just use the Throat wavetable in Malstrom and modulate the index (with an envelope if you want or an LFO or whatever) and then you can sine shape it and comb filter it in Malstrom. Then you can do shit like use the Screamer thing to add overdrive or distortion or tube or tape or scream distortion or whatever you want, but not too much. And the vocoder in Reason you can also use that as an EQ to shape the sound more. Pretty simple surprisingly, the magic is all in the Throat wavetable. You could also use the other vocal ones just mess with the octave knobs to see how they sound, the Elektrik one for example sounds better in the higher octaves.
You can just start a new project, do these things, mess with the mod wheel changing whatever parameters like index or the shift or whatever and just bounce a bunch of automations over a bar or so to audio, chop them up for later and fuck with em in whatever sampler you choose.
Stupidly simple. It's funny that it's such a "well-kept secret" right now for how easy it is to get that exact sound.
also iv roughly learnt how to do this in harmor with just the synth and no external FX, automating the phaser and two filters does great things
I'm not trying to sound like a dick, but if you're concerned because you can't seem to get a full grasp on FM8 in a matter of hours or a couple of attempts, then you probably don't have the work ethic to get anything sounding like that. Sound design like this does not happen over night man. There is no preset for these twisting type reeses and vocal growls. It's all about subtle (and not so subtle) effects and a crap ton of modulation. For the first sound, he very well could be using the "throat" or "tibetan monks" graintable in Malstrom. But take some time to learn FM8. Read the manual. Read the manual more than once. But FM8 is one of the best synths out there at the moment, and I have made some really nice reeses and other sounds straight out of the box with it.kyletree wrote:So, I've been working countless hours to get these two bass sounds, and I am completely stumped.
For #1, I've been using massive with ohmicide and a saturator.
For #2, I've been speaking the words "talk to me" through a mic, through abletons vocoder with massive modulating it.
I've tried to learn FM8 multiple times, but I can't seem to get it. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing here?
