Sneak Peek 01 (LOWEND101)
Just a sneak peek for LOWEND101
when I designed this bass on Elektron Analog Four MK2… I can’t resist to play these notes for the preview …
it’s flat recording, no EQ, no COMPRESOR, Flat out the A4 MK2 (but there’s Unison active in this one that’s why it’s kind of huge but sounds good to me with only one voice
Patch : PtchUnison
For this one I have in mind a classic vintage bass with a max sustain so you can play it as a long sustained sequence… (or not it’s up to you) (A:0 D:0 S:100% R:30%)
i started with the sub, i have in mind to start on the basic formula in the way of a 808 bass (you can find a very good example in Strobe2 from FXpansion called 808 bass but I design it with less pitch envelope in term of range), simple i started with a triangle, get the tone with a LP2 filter with Keytracking, little bit of overdrive, modulate OSC1 Pitch to get the energy, fine tweaking.
At this point, i activate OSC2 and inject 35% (Level Mixing) a SAW wave, Fine tweaking the overall configuration the Filter. Sound good to me at this point.
To get a more advanced sound, i activate unison check 4 voices (so there’s chance you need to resample this sound to free up your analog four but as i said the patch sounds good before on 1 voice so…)
When playing I can’t resist to play these notes from a classic French tune (yeah you already know it)
Add a bit of chorus, small amount of delay…
Also i have LOWEND101 in mind as a purest form of LOW END sounds… it will serve you as basic start point or pure TONE patch ready BUT i will not make sounds dirty, effected or with heavily movement because I want to encourage people to appropriate the sound and understand formula more to giving a personal sound signature : so there’s room for your taste in tweaking those patch according to your taste
From this patch i can easily make 10 different bass and more with how i play notes + modulation and live tweaking
