    So decided to record a tutorial for laughs, shows my chaotic workflow + awkward accent.

    Hope you enjoy it and do let me know if you have any techniques you do that I skipped over.

    Thanks! Was super nervous about my accent getting in the way to explain technical bits, but glad to know it worked out fine :).

    Great tut MisterApe, I found to be quite inspiring. TBH, I never thought about transposing an OSC so extreme and then combining it with harsh color (via filter, sine shaper, etc.) to reveal a crazy timbre...the result was quite nasty (in a good way, lol!) Don't be nervous about your accent, I was able to understand every single word. And if anyone gives you shit because of your accent, politely tell them to eat a bag of dicks.

    Cheers.

    Only thing I'd add looking back at it, is a 2nd instance of massive with a sinewave and a smooth square to add some more weight to the sub frequencies perhaps.

    And thanks for the comments :), I appreciate it.

    Really interesting tut, i never thought of formant shaping uber-low pitched waves. Great work, your accent only makes it more interesting.

    Fricken genius man. Filthy as is, though, with some harmor resampling or some frequency splitting you could something hoooooge

    Great tutorial. Same here, never thought of pitching that low.

    Very nice and informative work there, good job sir.
    A little critism on the side : Maybe use a compressor on your voice. I turned up my monitors to hear you well and then you neuro-bassed the hell out of me :D Try bringing the sound and your voice on one level, then you are super awesome! :)

    It's partially the mic, I'm going to buy a decent condenser mic for recording samples + for any future tutorials.

    Thanks for the idea though I'll look into it for the next one :D.

    Sounds like plasmic diarrhea. I like it. Definitely the mod osc and parabolic shaper are the pros in massive. BIGUP!

    Farty bass sounds are always the best :teeth:

    Next one I may be doing about modulation and processing, because there should be more of that on youtube.
