    i find that getting a sub bass and putting an amp on it is best for jungle. just short stabs of sines. maybe the odd pitch drop sine too. really really basic but to me is the best kind for jungle!

    I don't have Massive open in front of me, but if it's that percussive-descending bass sound you're after, key is to modulate the Osc's pitch via Envelope.

    Check out this tutorial for some inspiration.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Harvest militant or any bladerunner tune. It's to create the actual sound

    have you not watched sub focus reese bass? makes a great fucking jungle bass!! after this you can use some more modulation or pitch movements.

    Try to add some Chorus on your bass
    Will make a nice effect i guess...


    Cheers

    For jungle I like to use 808s with a little bit of attack, gives it that nice old school feel

    as someone said the sub focus reese is fine, a bit of processing after is needed and what i do is do a send to give the highs some character too.
    i used it in this track of mine

    jungle basslines are faily easy but take a long time to get how you would like them. I usually just select a couple of sine waves for osc's and put a eq on the bass and cut off all the high end then just play around with the cut off/ fx/eq till it sounds alright, them tutorials wont help you much cos the bass they create sound shit. imo

    i made the kick and snares myself mate and layered up the rest of the percussion slicing from amens etc and general loops.
    The snare im going to have to be honest on that one, im not entirely sure... general layering and compression. I'll dig back into the project file see if it was all bounced or if I can see what ive done!
