Techno basslines

i know alot of techno producers use a
bassdrum for the bassline of the track was just wondering what alot of them do to the bassdrum to get a good sound for a bassline.

Re: Techno basslines

Not really sure what you mean, but you can make the kick sample loop at the kick tail (just find nice zero crossing loop points).

Re: Techno basslines

Thanks for posting the video it helped me out.

I work in Logic 9 so I used Kontakt as the Sampler. For the sample I used a Tonal kick with a long subby tail then as well as the Attack I turned up the Sustain Decay and Release. Using the automation volume (while the kick is playing) I sculpted the sound to form a simple sine wave groovy deep tech bass.

Result!

Re: Techno basslines

to get inspired you can have a listen on TROY PIERCE signed on M-NUS. for me one of the best bassliner in techno/minimal Music. i think it could help you to have some ideas.

Re: Techno basslines

I've recently used the opposite approach. Tinkering with ADSR on a bassline synth to give it more of a beat like feel (posted in listening booth as 'Levitation'). Haven't tried the other way around, but reading this it seems so obvious.

------------------
Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

This. Another way is to use a reverb on a kick, resample it and play with the Attack and EQ so you are getting more the tail. Layer this over a normal, clean kick and further adjust the EQ's so they're not too muddy. Side chaining can also help you blend them here.

Experiment by moving your "tail kick" along slightly until you get a satisfying 1-2 1-2 1-2
