How is this bass made and arranged?

Post by Armando » Tue May 03, 2011 10:43 am

Hi guys,
i'm not understanding how this bass is made and arranged.
Seems to be two notes under the first and the third kick and another note just before them..isn't it?
Anyone?

You're right about the notes placement.

Seriously, just play around with it. This isn't a very hard pattern, so just lay down the kick and start putting notes where you hear them. It might take a while, but you'll feel like you've actually accomplished something. This way you'll be able to do this with harder melodies later on if you keep doing this.

If you're having trouble, just tap the "notes" on your table and tap your foot as if it's the kick drum. Keep doing this and then start filling in the notes.

As to the bass, it just pretty much sounds like a sine wave or saw/square/etc wave lp'd.

Import the music in your sequencer and make a loop of the pattern you want to learn.

This way it becomes a lot easier to determine where the notes are.

Also, turn off your grid. Bass in particular is often a little early/late and not rigid.

Maetrik has a special fattenizer unit that he built himself. All discrete analog transformers.

yup, this he runs through a bandcompressor, which has an almost totaly dry flanger unit placed after it. but to cancel the high freqs from that he bandpasses it at around 1254Hz for bass

recipe for gold
