Making a Heavy NI Massive Sub Bass
Like the other recent sneak peeks we’ve offered up lately, this will show you the bare bones version of this sound which will be released soon with a full array of Macro controls and professional programming that will have you pumping up your beats in the studio and on stage with the twist of a knob. This particular NI Massive sub bass is one that will be perfect in various hip-hop sub genres and will give you the upper hand in the red hot trap scene. Although it is easily modified and tweaked for many different uses, a sub bass of this kind is usually better used within in its intended speciality. And if this is not the sub you’ve been looking for, fear not, because we have more coming your way!
This particular NI Massive sub bass starts out with a Sin-Square wavetable loaded into OSC1 with the pitch dropped one octave. A Sine-Triangle wavetable is then loaded into OSC2 and the pitch is dropped two octaves. And a Smooth Square wavetable is loaded into OSC3 with the pitch dropped three octaves.
The Main Amp Envelope is shaped to give our NI Massive sub bass its proper delivery and get rid of any clicks.
The sound is routed through a Lowpass4 filter, loaded up on the Filter1 panel, which shaves off some of the high-end elements of this NI Massive sub bass.
Finally, the EQ is turned on and used to finish shaping our NI Massive sub bass. This is where we leave this sound, for now. The next time you see it, it will be a whole new beast loaded with hard-hitting bells and whistles that will make your fans feel your music rather than just hear it!
Here is a quick comparison of a beat on its own and again with the NI Massive sub bass backing it up to give you an idea of what kind of impact it has at this point.
