    Thought a thread where people can exchange 'FX' ideas to spice up their tracks might be good, i'm always experimenting with weird sounds and have heard sum awsome stuff on here..

    try to keep them as unspecific as possible so they can be easily applied to any DAW/VSTs/etc

    Heres 2 from me that can be used togther...

    get the logic delay and link feedback to one knob and groove to another, and start tweaking. you can also download a clone for free called analogic delay if you dont have logic.

    I recently am learning the advantage of splitting your bassline into Low, Mid and High frequencies and then affecting each one differently for a different sound
    Here is a video that explains the process in Ableton, obviously the same principal will apply to any DAW

    You can really notice the difference before and after the frequency split

    Actually... I'd advise you to become proficient with splitting your Bass into '2' sounds first.
    The "2nd" Layer generally covers 150hz and above.

    I've got a question...
    So obviously you will have a sub-bass layer... we will say 80hz and under for example.

    So then if I split my main bass into two parts what frequency ranges would that cover? If I went by the value of 150hz then I would have the bassline badnpass into 80hz-150hz and then highpass 150hz and above?
    And then sidechain the 80-150 range with the kick drum?


    Or... would I simply just low pass the main bass at 150hz and then highpass 150hz and above?
