    Know this wouldn't be too hard to make.
    But how do you get that classic fat sounding jungle bass?
    Am using massive in logic if anyone can tell me the basics would be much appreciated.
    Still haven't got the hang of proper clean sounding well produced basses at all.

    most would use an 808 kick with a pitchbend for the drop bass. post audio example or a youtube bit with the bass you mean and im sure someone will be able to explain

    Yeah usually there's no big tricks. You can emulate an 808 kick by using sine wave with a pitch envelope with a fast attack to snap the start of the sound. It's sometimes just compressed or simply loud as hell to make it fat. Maybe a light distortion and then lowpass to give it some harmonics.

    or is it the classic terrorist reece. there are any number of ways to achieve that sound, but 2 saws, detune, lowpass, resample immediately springs to mind

    I guess it has a lot to do with luck LOL.

    But basically you just make FX chains with filtering, LFO's all that jazz, whatever you can think of. Then you create a wave of it and start all over again. Repeat until you have something usable.

    And that sounds like a double bass sample.

    the bass after the drop is a classic ray keith terrorist reese. which is originally from alex saunderson, as it were. you can sample it from their tunes, or, if your the diy kind of dude, make it yourself. did you try? what daw are you in?
