Recreating Koan Sound Bass.. The Smoother Tones

Post by jbcrazy » Thu May 10, 2012 3:17 am

I hope this hasn't been asked... probably has but the search didn't help much.



The song is the A-Team Remix.

Not really going for the more in your face stuff and the crazy reeses those guys put out. I've been trying for a day or two to get something similar to this with mediocre results at best. I know the dudes use Malstrom, so it's probably index automatons... but the bass sounds so alive and smooth. Hard to get that same timbre and expression while making it sound warmer. Any suggestions on which grain table to use? I am assuming Elektronik and Throat. These guys are geniuses... on a side note.

Can anyone help out?

Thanks.

sounds like a reese made with squares and modulated as standard just keeping the filters from opening up to hard and high (or frequently) so you don't get the rough and high end of it cept for the controlled parts when they want it to

ie: recorded this as an example for you, this is a square reese patch i made on my micron
not quite as subtle since the modulation opens more and such (as i recall i went a bit overboard on my mod matrix), but should show you the tones and what i mean

obviously would need a bit of distortion and some more processing to get those top end growls embellished like the have it, but that's the basics to it

Yeah I figured it was a smoother squared reese. I was trying to use Malstrom, maybe they didn't use it for this particular sound. I am getting closer. Maybe its just a bunch of post processing.

Love the sound you made. A little pitch bend here and there and we'd get a lot closer.
