Here’s what the author has to say about the tutorial:
READ ME =D
The recording is poor, you will not hear much bass at all in this, but the ideas are all there!
Back with another tutorial! This is a question I get a hell of a lot, and it regards those dirty, distorted basslines that you hear in Daniel Kandi and Suncatcher tracks. Watch to see how I create them in Sylenth1.
NOTE: The effects were done VERY quickly, and I would like to point a few things out:
1. With EQ, remember to use those ears, and only boost and cut to suit your track, take these settings as a rough guide ONLY.
2. The compression, to achieve the best result, lower the threshold about 5 to 6db below the output. Say your bass is at -12db, make the threshold about -18db or so. This will make the compressor act a lot harder and tighten the sound more.
It’s also worth recommending using a VST like MonoMate or Otium BassLaneFX to center the lower end.
Step by step video tutorial, how to make a Trance pluck sound similar to the one used in Cosmic Gate – Barra tune. This time a hardware synth is used as an example but the tutorial can be recreated with most virtual instruments.
This tutorial shows you how to create a trance arpeggio by hand using ableton live, massive, and a sound set from Adam Szabo.
