    I've been making jungle for a while but I can't seem to get my 808 bass hitting the right area , I'm using a 808 from the jungle warfare pack then putting it in a nntx sampler in reason but it doesn't sound right and it's hittin 100htz when I want it at 50htz ?

    Cheers if anyone can help ?

    One octave down will bring it to 50hz i believe.

    I was gonna come in here and say "I got 808 problems, but a kick ain't one". You've taken this simple joy away from me :(

    Also, what Russia-DJ said is right. An octave lower should take it to 50Hz; but, 50Hz is fuggin' low as shit, might as well just take a simple sine oscillator and give it a percussive envelope and a pitch bend from 55Hz down to 48Hz then just layer that under your 808
