Ok I hope this doesn't sound daft but I'm having trouble with my bass, not creating them but using them once made.
In other words I'm having problems creating bassline patterns and sounds that fit it..
For example I've trying to create a Hazard type bassline;
16 bars X bass and wahh,wah-wah-wah, wahhhh - then 16 of Y bass and wubb,wub-wub-wub, wubbb.
I can get wub-wub-wub but not a wah-wah-wah that 'fits' or wub-wub-wub if I start with the wah-wah-wah instead, I mean it could be me over changing settings (or changing it correctly) in the synth of the original sound before going to town on the fx's..
Another example would be wahh,wahh, wah-wah-wah-wah - then wubb,wubb, wub-wub-wub-wub.
I know the wah-wah-wah-wah is split so theres a low wah-wah-wah then high wah and you'd have the wahh-wahh oscillating at half the speed of the wah-wah-wah-wah and they hit on your kicks right (at least the lead one)?
I have read alot of threads on creating wobble bass and also listen to a fair bit of wobble as well both have been useful, it's just putting that together when trying to put together a tune. I seem to create a few good sounding basses or in this case wobbles and get stuck too often, I can usually make one good bassline but then struggle to put together a 2nd and 3rd bassline as good when I realize I need to change it up... I'm finding the hardest thing of late to figure out, there must be rules (or guidelines?) when it comes to making wobble patterns (or any other type of bass pattern), just like how when you learning the 4,8,16,32,64 rule makes things easier and gives you something to follow when starting out ..
