Steve Angello Style Saw Tooth Bass with NI Massive
In this tutorial we take a look at a quick and dirty, Steve Angello influenced NI Massive Sawtooth Bass! This is a one oscillator NI Massive patch that can be forged quickly and easily!
In this tutorial, YouTube user SixDeanTutorials guides us through creating a Steve Angello influenced Sawtooth Bass. This NI Massive Sawtooth Bass is a quick and easy sound to make. The single oscillator design makes this patch easily modifiable and allows you to take full advantage of the Massive softsynth.
Start the NI Massive Sawtooth Bass by dropping the Pitch of OSC1 to -24 (2 octaves). Since this is a single oscillator patch there is not much else to do in terms of the oscillators. When the sound is complete you may want to experiment with other wavetables or adjust the wavetables parameters.
For Filter 1, assign a Bandpass Filter. Set the Cutoff, Bandwidth, and Resonance to about 40%. For Filter 2, select a Bandreject filter and set both the Cutoff and Bandwidth to 40%, and the Resonance to 50%. Next, you should set the Voices to 1 and enable monophonic.
Add a Sine Shaper to Insert 1. Set the Dry/Wet to full, and then set the Drive to about 40%. Insert 2 should be given a Hardclipper, with both the Dry/Wet and Drive set to full.
The next thing we need to do for the NI Massive Sawtooth Bass is set the effects. For FX1, we will assign a Classic Tube Distortion. We can pretty much leave the parameters for both FX1 and FX2 at their default positions. FX2 should be assigned a Dimension Expander in order to really bring out the spacial aspect. Finally, set the EQ so that there is a slight boost in both the Low Shelf and the High Shelf.
That’s it for the Steve Angello influence NI Massive Sawtooth Bass. Obviously you should aim to make this sound unique as possible, and there is plenty of room to do so! You may want to try adding more oscillators, or changing up effects. One of my favorite modifications, and one that has become used on every recent project, is to edit the envelopes. Changing the Attack, Decay, Sustain, and Release can quickly make a stock sound sound professionally customized.
