View Full Version : the reece/virus screamer bass?
for all producers relying on software:
how do you make it?
im thinking a three layer type deal,
1: strickly low freqs, lots of lowpass, a little overdrive and a small bit of compression
2: midrange layer probably a square type osc, grainy dist, high threshold compression and perhaps a small amount of ring modulation
3: large highpass with the crackliest dist you can find
eq the thing to where you want it and mash the layers together with a compressor (or maybe a hardlimiter?)
any other techniques?
its all very theoretical right now cos i havent been at my desktop studio for quit a while now. (im like cooking lots of food right now cos i have nowhere else to channel my creativity haha)
anyone with the real hardware please whip us up a batch of long note samples please oh please?
and yo anyone with a good dist plug let us know ok!
i hear predatohm is nice but its shareware so... :?
i don't know what software you're using, but for ProTools TDM nothing beats AmpFarm by Line6 for distortion plugins. If you're running a native program, I recommend SansAmp. I don't remember who makes it.
I also like the Logic Bitcrusher, which comes with Logic. It's real good for those Atari-esque sounds.
i use all programs except protools haha. just my luck.
sansamp eh? ill have a look.
quadrafuzz, antares tube, and vintage warmer are all good for reeses.
personally i use amplitude (Y)
A few samples.... got to do them 1 by 1..... though.
Have fun with these.
Check this if u can and tell me what u think?
i use antares tube & psp vintage warmer
I using Antares Tube
Also you can get some really cool distortion using a compressor plugin like Waves C1... really low thresh, near 0 attack, 0 decay, top ratio = DIRTY distortion :monkey:
Good work man, this is exactly what I neeeed...
Please, everybody else contribute and maybe tell us how you make them...
And one thing disfunction, if I'm hearing correctly the reeces are paned ? That, to me, isnīt a possitive thing.
they were recorded in stero from the virus....if there is panning the virus did it..
just convert to mono left or right dependind on ya likin]
TO SHARE OR IF YOU NEED HELP (SX USER) AIM DISFUNCTIONUK
my theory was definitely not right albeit maybe not that far off. i make my reeces by generating noise in cooledit and then tweaking it. or some shit. im highly abstract with reece generation. theres a reece in every sample. ive got a tune coming up soon, you can check out the results so youll know im not bullshitting.
looking forward to checking those samples my friend. ill take a look at your tune too. asap.
I like Vintage Warmer and Nitro for distortion (and Nitro does loads of other cool shit too), I usually go for sawtooth waves, usually with pwm and then just distort and limit it to buggery.
