How To Make Bass Sound with Novation V-Station from scratch

Sometimes people ask me about my soundsets. They usually ask if I create presets from scratch or start with some other presets and then tweak them. I realised that creating video with the whole process of making preset from scratch can be actually a nice tutorial. Well, here it is :)


This short tutorial shows how to create nice (in my opinion ;) ) house / electro bass sound with Novation V-Station VST Instrument. Well, actually it's high layer bass sound - you can layer it with some subbass to get real bass. Notice how FM Level Knob can dramatically change the sound. Also take a look at Oscillator 2 - it has volume set to 0 but when I change it's waveform, it still affects an output sound (thanks to FM Synthesis).



Remember that you can set full screen or / and real size of the video - it'll help you to spot the details (just click the "cross" (?) icon). You can find this preset in Greeg V-Station Soundset but it's better to actually create it from scratch :)

This is my first video. I'm completely newbie with creating videos so give some feedback, maybe some tips :) Vimeo seems to have nice sound quality...

ps. Feel free to embed this video on your blogs, websites etc.
