    I am using Logic Pro X and have been using ES2 to try and make a Jump Up bassline. Finding it impossible to come up with a decent sound. Has anyone got any tips or tricks that I may find helpful?

    this was made with es2 without any processing, all straight from the synth



    I havnt been able to use it in anything, but it shows the potential of es2

    Thats an extremely broad question. . . . .Thats like asking 'how do i make jump up'. Theirs so many variables in the bass alone. you have two important elements, drum. . . . and bass. . . . . .You just asked how to make 50% of it. you won't get it in one thread hahaha.


    I work on the sub first. make it grove. Then I duplicate the track, cut the low end to 100 hz and work on the low mid section on its own . Adjusting it to the sub, grouping them and compressing them together slightly. Its going to be real tough to get the sound you want straight out of the synth.

    the link is gone man

    Sounds like the mid is an octave lower with slight distortion for harmonics and a vocoder for the "wet" sound. Theirs a ton of ways to do that but thats what id try first.

    I did this one real quick just doing what I said above. . . . . .Of course its dry and flat as hell, but you get the idea. It was a massive sub layer (square sine) and a Massive mid bass layer (square saw) pitched down an octave with low cut eq, distortion and a vocoder... . . . .It sounds like it needs some pitch envelope automation on the mid bass to get the squeezed sound. but its a starting point.
