    I have searched through the forum and all over the internet but I can not figure out to to make this particular bass sound. It shows up in a few diff ram records artists tracks but it most prominent in under pressure. I generally use massive and ableton synths to create sounds but any advice would help.

    Comes at 0.44 and repeats throughout

    It's one of a thousand variations on reece bass. See the how to bassline thread...

    Start by detuning saws, then add in some distortion.
    I can hear that you'll want to automate in some pitch bends, up 1 octave, then back down again.
    Now you only have to find out how to make that pig-squeal high end. Have fun with that. Could be another layer involving frequency/phase modulation, but I'm just guessing.

    Thanks for the replies. I will try my hand at it. Not exactly a master with reese basses yet either, im sure that has to be near perfect first.

    Recreating this sorta sound is just trial and error really, that's why I never even bother to try and get close anymore, just tweak till it sounds good enough and sleep on it for a bit.
