    This is a fuckin MASSIVE chuuuune.

    Anyway.. my question is.. that bass... Any tips on how to make it?

    Ive tried for ages. Im using detuned Saw waves n stuff but its not anywhere near what I want. I've used loadsa heavy distortion too but everything sounds too dubsteppy. Ya know? Too rusko-esque.

    Anyway... Anyone got any ideas?

    Sounds like a detuned saw wave to me, I think the sound itself is very similar to bass sounds of Noisia, Spor and that kind of Drum & Bass artists, would like to know how to create this bass sounds too.
    The answer is in the effects chain I think, and not in the making of a detuned saw reese bass. So any info on what kind of effects to use are welcome, like EQ-ing out the mid or lowpassing or maybe other things like phasers and flangers.

    -lots of modulation and movement within the bass
    -layers
    -mega distortion
    -freq splitting

    also multi-band distortion
