In this tutorial, Echo Sound Works shows you how to create a OVO/Hip Hop bass in Sylenth.
There are a few important characteristics of this bass sound that help make it sound unique. Without these, it’s just a saw bass.
1.) Glide/Portamento – the amount should be determined by how you ultimately end up playing the bass in context of a song.
2.) Negative MOD ENV1 Cut Off Value – This helps create a unique attack and decay to the bass sound.
3.) Adding the FX – Again, this bass is only two oscillators using a basic saw waveform. You gotta pretty it up somehow.
