The how do I make this sound thread


#21

So, for reference (if it matters) I have a Microbrute.
Now I know its possible to get the EBM type Bass Sound on it, but I just cant manage to get close to it.
I made the following settings using all information I could find online:

It currently is on around 50% Sawtooth, 100% Square, 25% Triangle, 100% Pulsewidth, 27% Metalizer,Modwheel is Cut Off is barely turned on, Resonance is a small bit below 50%, Brute Factor is around 40%, Envelope Amount is turned up around 75%., Modwheel is deactivated, so is Glide, Modwheel controlls LFO Amount, Lfo Amount (own setting) is around 50%, Rate is 100%, LFO follows sequencer, Envelope Amount on the vca is around 50%, VCA is set to Envelope. Envelope has everything at 0,only Decay is up around 20%

(Sorry for this being long but dont have a better way of explaining)

Now those are settings I managed to get from the information I could find, it kinda sounds ebmish but its really quiet and still a bit too flat,what should I do? Im looking for a more simple DAF/Front 242 type Bass sound for now, very basic ebm bass pretty much. I dont have any external devices,only my PC with Ableton and Audacity,besides the Microbrute

Edit:Forgot, I have LFO connected to Filter in the Mod Matrix and Envelope connected to Sub

Can you please post an example of the bass sound you are after? Like what is the most classic example you can think of?


#23

This should be the easiest since I already have the bassline for it saved in the sequencer

though for varieties sake:

Anything like this kinda sound

Edit: 1 day later but I kinda am close to an EBM Sound now. Thanks for trying to help though

How to create snare rolls like the ones in break beats.

I would recommend just creatively playing around with automating parameters such as velocity, release/gate or something like LP filter cutoff or some distortion parameter. Very basic linear, exponential or simple alternating patterns or sequences can go a long way. Another way to do it is using a group of similar but slightly different samples, add automation to taste.
