In This Zebra 2 – How To Create A Dual “Analogue” Bass tutorial we begin a series of using 4 Oscillators to create sounds that closely emulate analogue sounds in the digital domain.
Recently I purchased a Dave Smith Instruments Tetra (D.S.I) which has completely inspired me to create even deeper, bigger and better patches in Zebra. Mainly as a personal project to see how well i can emulate a real analogue synth in the V.S.T. (digital) domain.
Zebra 2 – How To Create A Dual “Analogue” Bass we begin by using the first 2 Oscillators tuned down by 12 and 24 semi tones respectively to give us a deep starting point.
They are both passed through a V.C.F (voltage Controlled Filter) using a Low Pass (LP) setting to clean them up a bit.
Oscillators 3 and 4 are very similar and are again passed through a LP filter. Oscillator 2 and 4 can be called “sub oscillators” in this patch.
Zebra 2 – How To Create A Dual “Analogue” Bass I use Env2 to modulate the cutoff frequency of the filters.
Finally in Zebra 2 – How To Create A Dual “Analogue” Bass we use random GLFO settings for panning to add extra space and width and we also use a compressor and EQ to tidy the final sound up.
All in all a simple patch but it shows you how to use 4 Oscillators to emulate (and its pretty close) a bass sound from a real analogue synth.
