Using NI Massive to Recreate a Benga Wobble Bass
This video tutorial shows how to use NI Massive to recreate the wobble bass from the song I Will Never Change by Benga!
This video tutorial looks at recreating the wobble bass used by the artist Benga. This NI Massive Benga Wobble Bass is fairly simplistic, yet it is a great sound. It requires all three oscillators, but only uses a Lowpass 4 filter and an Dimension Expander for the effects. This another showcase example of NI Massive’s modulation abilities.
Start the NI Massive Benga Wobble Bass by turning on all three Oscillators. Set the amp of OSC1 to about 70%. Raise the Pitch of OSC2 to 4 semitones, and drop the Pitch of OSC3 to -12 semitones (an octave). Then under the Voicing tab, select Monorotate.
The effects are fairly simple for the NI Massive Benga Wobble Bass. Assign a Lowpass 4 to Filter 1. Turn the resonance down all the way, and boost the Cutoff to about 65%. Assign a Dimension Expander to FX1. Slightly boost the Size, and slightly lower the Dry/Wet. In the EQ, set lower the Low End, and raise both the High End and Boost.
As for the modulation, set LFO 5 to modulate the Cutoff of the Lowpass 4 Filter. Under the LFO, raise the XFade Curve to about 75% of the way up. Enable Sync, and set the Ratio to 1 over 12. This completes the NI Massive Benga Wobble Bass. If you are have any questions or comments, hit up the forum and let us know!
