Echo Sound Works shows you how to make a thick Deep House bass in Massive. Learn some cool processing tips as well!
Deep House and Garage can get tricky. I find it hard to create a bass sound that fits the genre, but also sets me apart from other producers. To combat that, I tend to use processing and effects. I used some creative reverbs and delays for this thick Deep House bass in Massive.
The actual sound itself is pretty easy to make. It’s a blend of two different square waves. Most every Deep House bass in Massive will use a square wave mixed with either a sine or something more digital sounding.
The real magic of this sound happens in the effects. I set up two busses or aux sends and used reverb on one and then some side chained delay on the other. The reverb is pretty straight forward, a short decay time with a small amount of wet signal combined with a long pre delay really helps thicken up the bass. I also used an instance of Waves H-Delay. This delay plugin has some filters in it which make for interesting results. In a way, I used my delayed signal to boost the lo end of the sound.
