    Hey guys!

    I've been getting into darker dnb lately and i found a duo from my hometown who are making these nice growly basses. I'm talking about the main bass ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTvLmO_vL38 ). You can also hear this one as the first bass sound in Program by Noisia ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyrwMmsufJc ). I'm not asking for the exact sound, I would just like to know what the base for this sound is and how sounds like this in general can be achieved.

    Thx!

    This man speaks the truth, there's some ridiculously good quality basses in that pack.
    Very good base to start resampling from :).

    learn to synthesis them yourself, far more rewarding and interesting!

    nothing wrong about learning all yourself, but its also far more time consuming. And this can take years for some people, especially for beginners.
    The BHK packs are not avarrage packs like you know from other company's, and like i said Noisia and Athy's & Duster,
    also many other producers using these packs also for their bass sounds, but don't think if you get the same source you gonna get
    immediatly their sound. Of course you can, but you still have to know their further processing and arrangement skillz !

    Our goal is just to inspire producers, not to give you ready to go construction kits, you can use to throw quickly a track together,
    this don't works with our packs ;)

    if you want to have have fun get the sample packs. as mentioned it's all about arrangement. this genre was born off sampling. Bhk have some sick stuff.
    + 1 on the loopmasters packs. sometimes you just feel like they were chasing quantity rather than quality.
