I have a friend who’s very good at synthesis who have sysex and audio file and make those as close as possible. I also try to avoid overdrive in this patches so it should be very close… also i tested all my mk1 soundbank and i wasn’t choked by the sonic difference (at least i don’t have the mk1 to make a proper A/B Test but i find the SoundBank very usable as it is)
But as i said in this lowend 101 i kept things clean like starter you can all guys make it more distorted or gritty… or effected…
==> i kept myself 1 step before any coloration
When i design the LowEnd sounds i try to focus on if i don’t have the overdrive with what things i can dirt the timbre… and i think it’s not a bad things for 80% of the sounds in the Low register to add it in the end of the process… So if people prefer clean bass (like me) all this people will like most of the sounds… And they have always the possibility to boost in level but with the gritty injection who come with the Overdrive.
Patches who use the overdrive are MOVMENT series where i use it as modulation. i find the overdrive very great in that regards, i don’t think it will be a problem for MK1 users… it should be fine as it’s modulation.
For making things a bit gritty i used the LFO FM’ish instead (or options in Oscillators config). Strangely, (for now maybe i will change my mind) i don’t really found the overdrive useful in the sound design of LOWEND 101, maybe for a more signature series of something gritty and harsh i would use it… (except for those MOVMENT i talked about where it’s add spices in the Modulation and dirt just some parts… from Clean to Dirt…)
i really think to another one more in the “stab, pluck, keys, chords and LUSH sequence territory” after that one. where i do think the Analog Four is perfectly suited for that…
