my mate and i have started to get into crafting bass sounds using multisampling techniques. we have a template for it and it works like this in ableton; get a decent sound you like in synth of choice (we use massive) and then route it in your sequencer to be recorded to 3 tracks, hi mid and lo. on the tracks, put a multiband eq or some kind of eq to cut the frequencies. so on your bass track, whatever audio is recorded to there, only frequencies from 0-150hz will be left in and do the same for respective frequencies for mids and lows. the advantage of this is that it allows you to effect and process each band of the reese or bass or whatever you are trying to make individually. i'm sure lots of you know of this technique in some form, it ain't new. we are however, new to it and we're kinda looking for some tips. we've had some decent results so far but it's hard to get something real awesome. so far what we've done mainly is get a fat sound in massive and then just effect the mids mainly with ohmicide and other stuff. our main inspiration are noisias huge, tearing basses but obviously they are almost the holy grail in these types of things. what are your guys experience with this technique? i've heard of the technique of making a "massline" which is like a 4 or 8 bar sequence of just crazy fucked up bass/reese sounds and from there you cut out the pieces you like to use. how do you guys approach this?
