      Hi Guys,

      Lately I have been trying to resamole my bass to get some different variations of mid bass within my tunes. I am finding it difficult to get the results I am looking for.

      Currently I am automation band pass + notch filters within fab filter ProQ2. I am using the logic auto filter and automating the cut off/ resonance. Is it essential to get a third party filter such as WoW 2 or filter freak ?

      I just find the sounds I’m getting are pretty shitty. If anyone has some good tips to get me on my way that would be great.

      How many instances of filters/ distortion do you have? What are the Qs like on your band pass filters, are there any other techniques that could help me ?

      Anything with resampling a bass line in an interesting way it’s greatly appreciated 🙂

      Cheers guys

      What I try to do for variation, is to record myself playing around with the filters (also switching around distortion types, plug ins etc.) and then I look for parts that I like. I tend to have 1-3 filters doing things (Usually Arturia mini filter, Abletons Stock Auto-Filter or TAL Filter 2 (< – Free and really powerful, check it out!)) and thats it tbh. Its more about trial and error for me I think.

      For Distortion I usually go with Trash2 or Fabfilter Saturn or the stock plug ins from Ableton since they’re already pretty powerful.

      It also depends on the type of sound I wanna get, for big reece basses I will try the craziest things, for deeper/minimal stuff I’d try to stay as clean as possible and really strip it down to the essentials.

      Hope I could help you a bit!

      Yeah man I watched it from this month.

      I’m fine with sound design with distortion at the moment. It’s re sampling my bassline once I have made the bass line I am finding difficult using filters etc.

      🙁

        Honestly, for me, resampling can be a lot of trial an error to find something good. The most important part is getting an early sound that you are happy with. From there just mess around. When people say that the coolest sounds came at random, they mean it. Eventually you will develop patters and whatnot but don’t overthink it.

      The resampling part of Joe’s lesson will come soon.

      Which tutorial has the most bass resampling content so far?

      State Of Mind have done a useful one also Chris SU, but it’s in quite a lot of the videos in various places..

      State of Mind, for sure. Inside Info also has a good bass class.

      And as Genie said, sprinkled throughout. I like Jade’s neuro bass class too. Good foundational info.

      Something which I do which helps amssively, I picked this up from older seamlessR videos is modulate with a band pass or combination of notches, now use a multi band compression tool to drive out the frequencies which are missing, essentially overdriving the sound you get some really liquidy textures coming through. Often if you only modulate say a band pass or modulate 2 or 3x notches you lose alot of the frequency content.

      Try the above, it should fill out the spectrum a bit more and give you some fuller sounds.

      Just as a secret heads up… next month’s tutorial is from Buunshin. And this one is DEEP 😉

      I have just found this plugin (output – portal) it’s a cheat in terms of sound design

      Yeah man its a lot of trial and error. The more you do it the better you get at knowing whats (potentially?) best, speeding up your sound design time. I spent all last year doing this and there would be full days where Id just be resampling basses not getting any where, and days where it’d end up with something cool fast.

      I usually resample most my mid basses from my sub. I throw all kinds of different distortion and amps on it with EQing as well. Then I just see what works and try different filtering from there. So if I have my sub groove ill throw on an amp or trash or abletons stock saturator then maybe serum FX and then just try random filter plug ins like wow filter or fab filter volcano etc. Ill also loop say an 8 bar phrase and then record my self automating anything, say over drive, with a couple things then ill have potentially a bit to grab from that recording
