Synthesizing funky glitch bass.

My favorite kind of bass is this bass sound (starts at 0:38):



Filtered somehow, gritty, and just has a certain sonic feel that's hard to put into words, but really thick and full and delicious.

Any suggestion/tips on how to produce this sound, or at least a name for the style of sound so I can at least find tutorials for it?

Thanks!

Re: Synthesizing funky glitch bass.

It's all in the filters baby.
This is probably a nice synth (or Vsti) like a Virus with some great envelopes on some mid-resonance filters over a few sawtooth waves. All the rest of the cleverness of this is in the bassline's arrangement and how it works with the drums it's actually a pretty raw (but real nice) sound. NI Massive makes sounds like this a lot easier.. There's such a massive field of error where you can be so close to this sorta sound (because it's a basic and big sorta sound) I find though.

If you want google to speak to you maybe try "Filtered sawtooth bass" or "Wonky sawtooth bass" or something *shrugs*

Re: Synthesizing funky glitch bass.

Try notches and narrow boosts. Move them around (cutoff/frequency) like a motherfucker. Try playing around with Q width on the notches.

Additionally there is chorus, no sustain and release with staccato notes, pitchbend/glide/glissando.

Re: Synthesizing funky glitch bass.

I dunno if it's chorus or just several oscillators slightly detuned. But either way you'll get there.

It can help to automate the release and decay of your bass's amp env. Makes it way more expressive for plucky stop/start basslines like this.
