Icon5 Bass + Filter Sweeps (Tipper Production Techniques)

As you may already know Tipper is a major boss in the game when it comes to bass music production. According to wikipedia he's worked on test sounds for Bose. And now there's a whole wave of up and coming downtempo producers influenced by him (Kaminanda and Desert Dwellers are the first that come to mind but there's tons more out there)

My question is, does anyone have any insight onto how he's making some of those filthy bass sweeps? Do you know what programs he's using? Pretty sure he's not using plain old ableton auto-filter to get those sounds. Anyone know any boss sampler or filter VSTs that are intuitive for these kinds of sounds? I've checked out Alchemy and I'm looking for something along those lines, where you can plug in samples and modulate them. But maybe less complex than Alchemy?

Or if you know any other source online that covers this sort of thing, link me up Scotty.

You mean like those reoccurring dual bandpass sweeps (and notch sweeps)?

Re: Bass + Filter Sweeps (Tipper Production Techniques)

I think yeah, EQ automations and formant filters.
But also I'm pretty sure he uses some kind of granular synthesis techniques.
But he also is known to do some controllerism scratch sounds too.

Part of his success is also he knows how to combine different sounds together as if they were one instrument.
There have been a few interview with him where I think they mention his gear. I'd look there.
I think I vaguely remember that he uses a Mac but I don't know for sure.

My other intuition is that he does a lot of resampling.

Re: Bass + Filter Sweeps (Tipper Production Techniques)

The granular stuff that Tipper does is manual or whatever,he's taking a sound and cutting it up into tiny samples worth of audio and manipulating the formants that way.the way i hear it is,he's using effects that manipulate formants and phase (e.g a decimator,flanger,filters) then making the sweeps etc from chaining different lengths of "grains" together.i think this is what he means when he says he does alot of "micro-edits" and there's a certain fluidity to his movements that i don't believe a granular synth/sampler (atleast most of the ones i have tried and are familiar with...maybe Absynth)give you that level of control.it doesn't seem completely unfounded considering the ridiculous comlexity of his arrangements,which appear to be deceptively simple.

Do you have any example of Tiper's bass sounds ?

Could re-explain this again using different words? I'm trying to wrap my head around this and I can't quite get it. Thanks
