Design Huge Cinematic Bass Sounds In Zebra
This week I will show you how to make big cinematic bass sounds in Zebra, you can use this as an effect or as the main foundation of your song.
Reverb is often the key when it comes to big and cinematic sounds, today is no exception!
The function of this sound is to give perception to your mix and to make everything sound wider and deeper, you accomplish this by putting sounds way in the “back” of your mix and other sounds at the “front”.
This makes the music sound a lot deeper, just as it would in a painting or a photograph.
The sound in this video is obviously going to live in the background, because of the reverb, but it’s still providing a lot of low end and punch!
Be careful with these low sounds though they can easily eat up all your low frequencies, meaning that you cant use a lot of other low sounds at the same time.
To make sounds like this is pretty easy, you create a rhythm with an MSEG or Envelope and you tune the oscillator down a few octaves. After that you apply a low pass filter and a lot of reverb
The choice of reverb is important here, because this is the sound that people are going to hear the longest, so spend some time on it. It is never a bad idea to practice with reverbs anyway!
