Want To Design An NI Massive Squeal Bass?
If you’ve ever wondered how to make your Massive Synth snarl and squeal like a wild animal then this is the tutorial for you! This tutorial will show you how to create an NI Massive Squeal Bass that is similar to what the artist Borgore uses to create his infamous pig squeals. Utilizing all three Oscillators and a Performer, this fierce sound is capable of delivering some gnarly squeals.
To start off the NI Massive Squeal Bass, activate OSC1 and assign it a Square-Saw I Wavetable. Drop the Pitch to -16, turn the Wt-position to halfway, and crank the Intensity and Amp to full. Activate OSC2 and assign it a Square-Saw II Wavetable. Drop the Pitch to -4 and turn the Wt-position all the way down. Still on OSC2, drop the amp to about 75% and rouet it to Filter 2. Next, you will want to activate OSC3 and assign it a Square-Saw I Wavetable. The Wt-position should be dropped all the way, and the Amp should be set to 50%.
Now you need to setup the filters for the NI Massive Squeal Bass. Assign Filter 1 a Lowpass 4 Filter, and then set the Cutoff to about 60% and the resonance to about 40%. Filter 2 should be assigned a Skream Filter with the Cutoff levels at 50% and the Resonance level dropped to about 40%.
For the effects, set FX1 to the Brauner Tube distortion and turn the Dry/Wet down to about 40% and turn the Drive up slightly. Set FX2 to Small Reverb and set the Dry/Wet to about 40%. For the NI Massive Squeal Bass EQ, slightly turn up the Low Shelf, the Boost, and the High Shelf, and slightly lower the Frequency.
Assign Insert 1 to Sine Shaper and turn both the Dry/Wet and Drive all the way up. Assign Insert 2 to Bitcrusher and drop both the Dry/Wet and Crush to about 30%. Finally, assign a Performer LFO to the Intensity of each Oscillator, and set the modulation to full. Assign the same Performer to the Cutoff of the Skream Filter on Filter 2 and allow it to modulate 50%. Now your NI Massive Squeal Bass should be ready to squeal!
