Tips for making absolutely monstrous Dubstep basses in Massive?

I dont use Massive much, so im admittedly shit at making any decent patches with it. So im making this thread so people can share random tricks/thoughts or whatever.

You could try automating the scream filter, it's pretty common for a bit of grit to your basssss

Re: Tips for making absolutely monstrous Dubstep basses in Massive?

Best tip: don't confine yourself to just the synth. Start with it as a foundation then get crazy with experimentation.

recording to audio is your friend mate.

Re: Tips for making absolutely monstrous Dubstep basses in Massive?

Can you make a decent regular bass? Not trying to make assumptions but, If not, maybe sort that out first. Who knows, after doing that you might not have a need for absolutely monstrous dubstep ones.

Re: Tips for making absolutely monstrous Dubstep basses in Massive?

Regardless of wether Dubstep is dead or not, isn't this the sort of thing everyone should -want- to learn? I mean I don't really like dubstep either but I'd definitely learn to nail those kind of synths.

I don't know what Dubstep is but I'm pretty sure it's dead.

When I say "Dubstep" I dont mean Skrillex, which apparently is what everyone thinks of when they hear that word.

Re: Tips for making absolutely monstrous Dubstep basses in Massive?

we've got some nasty basslines, if this is the kind of stuff you are talking about:





then I have some tips for you:

distortion in small layers, small progressive layers of subtle distortion add up to big changes in tone

movement comes many different ways, filters, WT position, intensity, etc, try lots of things

compression/limiting for impact

post processing is just as important as what you are doing in Massive, EQ, compression, fx, parralel processing, these are complex sounds with a lot going on in and outside of the actual synth
