I'm not a music producer, but for a while I've been curious to know what some of the primary tools were that helped create the breaks, basslines, and synth sounds of oldskool jungle, darkside, and hardcore. One of my curiosities is how the "reese" bass was made, as heard on tracks like Renegade - Terrorist. I think it has something to do with detuning two oscillators on top of each other, but how was this achieved before computers were used as synths (or was that already being done)? Was it done manually on a specific type of synth that had multiple oscillators? I also would love to know where the regular warm jungle bass sound came from, heard on tons of tracks in varying forms, but DMS & the Boneman X - Sweet Vibrations is an example of what I mean there. I wonder how the amen and other breaks were so accurately cut up and spliced back together by artists like Remarc and others. Was this accomplished manually with samplers, or did they already have the assistance of computers? How did they pull all those sounds from old soundclashes and dub sirens? Did they record onto samplers from vinyl? I have a total lack of knowledge about any of this stuff since I was a kid during the 90's and I've been surrounded by computers my whole life. Any info you can give about the creation of this type of music during its prime would be awesome even if it doesn't specifically answer any of the stuff I mentioned.
