    on a serious note... im gettin UNBELEIVABLY frustrated with my basslines. I'm trying to do that dubstep wobble bullshit but everything i do sounds utter wank. Ive got the sound i want for my b line but all the LFO speed and syncing stuff just sounds fuckin trash. any one got any tips on how to get the synced lfo to actually flow with everything else?

    hope at least a bit of that made sense

    haha. shaolin...


    na i can sync it and everything. its just when i try and automate the speed of the lfo, and automate the bassline it all goes pear shaped :(

    so i can make a tune with a semi decent, single speed lfo bassline. but that gets HORRIFICALLY boring after too long. know wa am sayyyyyyin?

    sure do, but does your thing automate to bpms or can you get it to automate to time sigs? like 1/3 and so forth

    Why not bounce the line on different sync times? Then you can swap between them mid flight.

    If dubstep is what u r doin then having a couple different bass sounds which are variations of eachother is a good technique

    bass 1 into bass 2 into bass 1 type of thing (within 4 or 8 bars)

    aside from wobbling the crap out of it

    Something I've seen (tutorial) and tried, but never really used...was having the lfo rate controlled by mod wheel, giving real time control over the wobbles. If you don't have a midi keyboard or other hardware controller can you map lfo rate to some other paramater and create an automation clip for it?

    Anyways, If you use massive, I might know some tricks. Not going to explain it all, too much work for me, but instead, ill put down the vids I watched to learn me wobble haha.(which includes all i know about wobbling)
    one thing tho if you are using massive which i am for wobbles) STEPSEQUENCER. << it pwns all for automation.
