Liquid Stranger Mechanical Bass

Postby DJ Skrudge » 12 Apr 2013 07:09

Hey guys! I've been messing around trying to recreate this particular mechanical bass that Liquid Stranger uses in a couple of his tracks, but I can't seem to get anywhere with it.

The bass in question starts at about 0:32, it sounds like a mechanical dog barking. Any idea on how to make something similar to this on Massive or Sytrus? Thank you guys in advance!

I'd say try an FM synth (sytrus will do fine).

Use one sine wave play a low note, FM it with a triangle at same ratio at 100% and another triangle at ~32:1 between 15% and 30% then move the volume of the to mod ops up and down.

It will give you a good start.

Try to change the waveforms of the ops and/or add another chain of the same type with 3 other ops with some differences to beef up the sound.
Also, detuned unison should help.
