Ableton Live Super Bass Rack

Our extremely productive friend AfroDJMac is at it again with more beef to your Live rack:

Serious bass sounds and much more. As part of the series of free weekly Ableton Live Rack Downloads, AfroDJMac brings you a synth designed to get those ferocious bass sounds. This rack makes use of Ableton’s Analog synth and the results go beyond just maddening bass. Follow along in the video for details…

Sometimes you just need a thick heavy bass sound.  Over the last few months, I’ve gotten a few requests for some heavy bass sounds.   While working on one of my tracks called “Part of Me,”  I programmed a bass sound that I liked quite a bit, and for this installment of my Free Weekly Ableton Live Rack series,  I have modified that particular bass sound.

I really appreciate Ableton’s Analog synth for its deep sound sculpting potential and really nice filter section.  It’s a synth that seems to get deeper and deeper every time I load it up.  This Ableton Live Instrument Rack was created with the idea of thick bass sounds in mind.  I used both oscillators, one a saw wave the other a square wave tuned an octave lower.  There’s a slight detuning to thicken up the sound and a bunch of effects stringed together, most notably, The Ableton Amp plug in.  Luckily and to my surprise, this rack winds up being more than just a bass sound.  Follow along in the video below as I take you through the rack and show how it can be sculpted into heavy bass sounds, pleasing chords/ pads, and soaring leads.
