Also what note range do you guys use for ur sub bass lines? I realized in some of my earlier tunes that i was just kind of using random notes and just low-passing it. The frequencys were still in the right range from the filtering but the notes i was playing weren't naturally peaking in the 30-80hz range, resulting in weak bass, if that makes any sense.
What are some common specific notes that are played for power in the sub-bass region?

depends on what octs the synth is set too XDvulvavibration wrote:below C3
c8 is the secret sweet spot for sub bass.....
..in all seriousness, if you cant be bother tweak anything and just want pure sub. This was alright and free.
If your playing alot of short notes you may want to bring the "release" down abit.

If you want more than just a sine wave, say maybe you want to go the route of using a square wave and distorting it and then lowpassing to drive out the higher frequencies, I would suggest something like FM8 or Massive. At least if you are someone who likes having all that available in one synth. Some people don't like the sound of the seperate distortion plugins or lack the funds to purchase the nicer ones. So in those cases it might be nice to have something like massive, and if you own it you myswell use it. But for the most part, there's really nothing special or complicated about creating a sub bass, so you're good with whichever synth you decide to use.
when ur bass is only sine - you filter out the fun. that "Coloration" is what you missing.
Drop the sine, take a saw:
most of the energy is the fundamental harmony. what you did is sub bass with just a single harmony (sine)
its simple, the ear doesn't like it.
So there are 2 ways to spice your sub.
1. create sinus one (like you do) and add some harmonies via distortion / shaper (be gentle)
2. create saw one (like you do not) and filter the hell out of it so you can hear almost only the fundamental.
It makes it fat, it makes it nice, cause every testicle needs some hair.
but the most important rule of all. Waves Rbass as an insert.
stop the keytracing of the filter. keep at low resonance, put the Rbass and lower the cutoff till its nice.
same approach made me to the sub on the signature track. (you can hear at the beginning)

... make your point.
my point is mainly that plugins like Rbass would ruin a sub. And saw wave sub would leave much to be desired on a real system. your methods are fine for bass, but not sub.
Also Rbass doesn't have a "cutoff" it has a center frequency, intensity, and gain control.
high pass whatever you're doing on the bass, and layer with a real sub bass.. the difference on a good sound system will be pleasing
