How To Make a Torro Torro Style Bass In NI Massive
We have another community member made video tutorial for all of you. This time it’s how to make a Torro Torro style bass in NI Massive. The popular remix of Neoteric & Wax Motif’s original hit Go Deep continues to gain more attention due to the epic drop and super funky bass synth. And this video does a pretty good job of replicating the sound, walking you through the process visually. There is no spoken instruction at all, so you may need to pay close attention to settings and even pause it a time or two to keep up and ensure you aren’t missing anything too important. It’s also best viewed in HD in full screen mode.
It’s a fairly simple sound to make, using only one oscillator. Keep the default Square-Saw wavetable loaded into OSC1 and drop the pitch two octaves. A Brauner Tube Amp is added as an FX to give the sound an edge. A Small Reverb is also added as an FX to give the sound just a bit more room to breath. Then a Sine Shaper is inserted to further shape the sound and enhance that edge.
On the Voicing tab the total number of Unison voices is increased to 4. The Pitch Cutoff feature is turned and used to introduce a fair amount of phasing. The Pan Position feature is used to spread the sound out more. Be careful not to go too far with either of these parameters, as it can cause phase cancellation issues later on.
The last main step of the process is also the part you may need to spend the most time on. The sound is routed through a Bandpass Filter, which has both the Cutoff and Bandwidth parameters being modulated by an LFO. The tricky part is finding the best waveform to use in the LFO and, of course, the positioning of both the paramater knobs and the controller assignments. The slightest move in any direction offers a different sound. It make take a few minutes to find the perfect sound for your project.
