The how do I make this sound thread


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?


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.


So another one:

Im trying to train emulating ASDR of other tracks, and this seems like an easy one
Only the main bass sound is already enough but knowing how the effects were done would also be nice.


DAF - Der Mussolini. Would also like to know how to make that bassline.
I would say they used an analog monophonic synth with pitch modulation. Track is dope tho. KMFDM version is also very good

Just found this via googling:

Der Mussolini is all MS-20/SQ-10. I’ve always though it’s running through some kind of phaser or chorus on that track. They also still use that setup on stage when performing it.


Could be just sampled snare roll + processing


Man I forgot my pass word and couldn’t respond to the emails I was getting about your responses, I appreciate your help, I recently acquired a squarp and I must say it is a dream to sequence breaks and my own custom fm percussion, the resampling madness


Where is the Evelon ???


Most likely Some users shitposted too much useless crap on this forum (i.e. memes, general assholery, and skrillmau5 hate love threads) and most likely decided to stop wasting his time in dealing with fucktards like myself trying to figure out how to make this specific bass sound because life responsibilities to take care of…imo
