I don't have first hand experience with the mBase but I occasionally listen to tunes my friend's produced, with kicks from the mbase. Most of the time I simply don't like them, the same way I didn't care much for my 999 kicks.steevio wrote:you cant assume that the 999 kick is anything like the mbase. Its not.Barfunkel wrote:
Well, I used to own a 999 and I never got a truly great kick out of it, no matter what I did. Could be just me though.
your description in the previous post does not describe the sound i get from my mbase at all.
i compared the mbase 01 with my TR909 kick through a big system at a gig recently, and the mbase won hands down, much more presence, much more energy, much less boomy, no idea what boinky is.
you have to program it right
and i dont process it at all.
This could of course just be my own personal taste for kicks, not an objective observation (if such things even exist when it comes to music).
