What's the secret of this extreme weighty bass?

Hi,

found this tune (weighty.mp3) in a mixtape...

Looks like there is a sine at E1 (41 hz) and also at B2 and G#3.

My recreated bass (mytry.mp3) sounds similar but doesn't has the weight :(

If i make the bass louder (level up/compress/...) he sounds distorted (more like a square)...

Any idea what makes the bass so damn loud and "rollin"?

Thanks!

Try using two sines at B2 and G#3, detuning slightly and panning one left one right to get stereo width.

The original is stereo, yours is mono

Be weary of giving your bass too much width though or you might fuck it up. Sub sounds best as mono, so try seperating your frequencies. Mid / side EQ will help you with this.

1. Save Shredded Worms
When your plastic worms get torn up, save ’em. Bass like to ambush wounded prey, so a beat-up worm is perfect to use, especially in shallow water.

2. Red Fools the Fish
In shallow cover — wood, stumps, clumps of grass — I like to use a spinner bait with a red or pink head, and a crank bait with red hooks. The red makes the fish think the bait’s injured, and they’ll bite at it.

3. Skip Your Bait
When you cast, stop halfway instead of following through, similar to a check swing in baseball. This makes the lure hit the surface of the water a few feet before your target, so the lure skitters over the water. It’s a good way to get under docks and other structures.

4. Keep Your Hooks Sharp
I use a file to sharpen my hooks every time I catch a fish and before every trip. It takes 30 seconds. Bass have boney jaws, so a sharp hook is more apt to penetrate the fish.

5. Look at Your Livewell Water
When you put a bass in the livewell, they’re notorious for spitting up what they were feeding on. From there you can tell what color lure or kind of lure to throw the rest of the day.

6. Face the Wind
Sacrifice some distance in your casts and fish with the wind in your face. Bass always swim with the current, so it’s better for them to find your bait before they find your boat. Plus, the noise of water slapping your hull will carry away from the spot you’re fishing, which is good.

7. Fish Shallow in the Spring
In the spring bass hang out in spawning beds. Concentrate on shallow areas, especially in pockets and coves protected from the wind because this is where they like to guard their eggs. They’ll bite as much out of irritation with the lure as they will out of hunger.

8. Make Your Bait Seasonal
Bass eat different bait depending on the time of year. The general rule is early in the year they like crawfish, so use peach-colored patterns. In the summer and fall they like shad, so use chrome or silver baits.

9. Fish before the storm
The best time to fish bass is before a front comes through, and the worst time to fish them is after. The pressure makes the bass more active, so watch for a wall of clouds moving in. When it’s too pretty out, bass aren’t likely to bite.

10. Bug Those Bass
Bass is an ornery fish. You have to keep tapping at it to upset it into biting your hook. Bass position themselves in cover, and like the lure presented to them at different angles. I’ve tossed lures a hundred times onto the same location until finally getting a bite.

Hi, converted the track to mono and the bass is still fat :)

So it hasn't anything to do with stereo width...

Also my analyzer says it's only E1 and B2....

But still no idea why this track (esp. the bass) is so much louder than all others.

Of course there are no other fat elements in this tracks... only the rap and some drums on the higher notes...

Also i don't know if there is a "bass melody" running or if this is just clever use of adsr...

you are over thinking it my dude
 
Your sub bass has the same weight, to get your bass into this shape just add slightly a lowpass filter movement and some stereo width on top.
