Access Virus tutorial - Sub Heavy Deep House Bass
In this tutorial I show how to make a “Sub Heavy” Deep House Bass.
The patch is really deep and low. Most Deep house basses have a high end part and a low end. The high part of this patch is taken up by a grain complex oscillator called Fluxbin.
This was chosen for it’s grit.. The other two classic wave forms were a Square and a sine wave. These are commonly used for basses and are what give it the really deep feel. The main tool for sculpting the sound is the filter envelope. The band pass coming 2nd in the series of filters lets us aim at the sub part of the sound. a litte distortion and some delay in the effects section help the early, higher part of the sound stand out. The patch is completed by the analog boost in the character section, aimed at the sub to make it sound fuller. A nice patch with not to much modulation in the matrix section. you can control the volume of the sub to how you need it by simply turning down the oscillator 3 volume.. In case you would like a more subtle Bass..
