    What VST synths u use for bassline? Albino, Predator, Trilogy...?
    Do u use presets or cr8 ur own basslines..
    Also what kind of multi band compressors do u use (on master channel and other instrument channels)?

    same as above, but i start from scratch, once you get the hang of making your own sounds, theres no limits,

    I use z3ta for everything at the moment, its really easy and powerful once you get used to it, presets are alright for tweaking and deconstructing sounds to learn more and shit.

    yeah z3ta is amazing for bass
    for your question about compression only do it on the channel you want to compress if you do it on the master you will compress the whole tune

    i tend to make raw sounds in either reason's malstrom, pro53, massive, legacy cell or fm8 im sure i missed some more out. but i basically get the noise as horrible as i possibly can (un filtered) an then bounce it stick it in kontakt then make groups of the same noises wiv different envelopes, tends to sound either completly fucked or really good depends wat your goin for.
