Chase & Status synth sounds?

Post by VirtualMark » Fri Nov 05, 2010 12:35 pm

Hello. I'm interested in any insight anyone can offer as to how Chase & Status get 'that' sound out of their synths. I.E Saxon, Bits, Madhouse, Is It Worth It(Vip). I have massive, albino and various other synths and demos. I've tried using distortion plugins, splitting the bass into 3, all sorts of stuff thats mentioned on here. Closest i've got is a kinda clipped sound from massive(using the hardclipper and other modulation) and run that through different distortions such as amplitube and omnicide.

I'm not trying to copy their sound, they're advanced producers and way beyond anything i could do anyway. I'm just trying to learn about how to get various sounds, and theirs is a nice meaty one to try to reproduce. Any help and advice would be appreciated! :4:

Massive = Brutal Electro Patch = Chase & Status

They use a lot of presets and a lot of compression from what I can gather..

I wonder if they use a saw lfo on their pitch? Some of the basslines have that throbbing sound. Does anyone know if its just one synth they use? Or do they layer different sounds? I've tried all the tips in the midrange bass section on this forum, plus countless other tutorials on the web, but not been able to come close to this sound.

hes laughing because someone has already told you what preset to use, and your making this way to complicated. Least thats my guess.

So they use a preset?? It sounds different to their stuff, although i can see the similarity. I'd be surprised if they just used a preset, id have thought they'd come up with their own sounds.

Nah its the brutal electr patch, you need to route the lfo around different though. The differences are cuased by them putting subtle effects after it in the chain, reverbs, saturators n shit...

But for the most part, its brutal electro. :D:

If anyone does know about this patch i'd be interested to hear. I've played around with it a bit but can't get that c&s sound.

I do like the synth work on the opening note of Easterham.

Wish we had one of THOSE for dinner on the holidays... :mrgreen:

Haha i'm familiar with the hamvst joke. I'm just asking about this preset as sound design interests me. Also have a lot of respect for chase n status, they're great producers. I can see from the clips above that they did use this patch, i'll experiment with some plugins.
