In our latest video tutorial from Dubspot sound design instructor/course designer Evan Sutton, we’ll learn more about making heavy bass using Native Instruments’ Massive, using a chain of waveshapers to create some out-of-this-world textures and mutations
You can achieve similar effect to Avicii – Bromance sweep / uplifter sound in many ways. The above example is just … an example. It uses certain (Vengeance) sample, it uses Ableton Impulse device, but to be honest it may be any sample, and no Impulse is required. But still, it learns the effect 🙂 I remember that I used any synth with a simple square waveform selected, then some basic Ableton Live’s effects such as Saturation (or overdrive), Delay, Reverb and it blended pretty well with standard noise uplifter sound.
Hmmm it’s not a 100 % recreation (actually I managed to do the second sound much closer in my soundbank for Cakewalk Z3TA+2 available here) but still this video may be helpful for some.
The DAW is Logic and synth are from Logic too.
In my personal chart, Sounds of Revolution is one of the best sample packs developer. If you visit testimonials, you can see tons of producers (mostly related with Electronic Dance Music scene) praising their stuff, ie: Tiesto, Blank & Jones, Timo Maas, BT, Thrillseekers.
So if you need quality samples, then feel free to visit Sounds of Revolution Free Samples section which offers small snippets from their commercial libraries. Good stuff.

This is, I believe, one of the best tutorials coming from nzmusic101 – useful for some dubstep producers I guess (nope, it’s not another YOI sound). It’s just a good wobble 🙂
There’s not much to add here 🙂 If you’re into Afrojack style Dutch sounds then this video (check nzmusic101 youTube channel for more) should encourage you to experiment more with synthesis and NI Massive synth.
How to make crispy electro bassline in Sylenth soft synth ? Just watch this video. The sound is really nice, especially if you’re into Electro, Electro-House genres…
Another wobble bass/synth tutorial ? No, not this again 😉
But it’s for Lennar Digital Sylenth, not NI Massive “dubstep synth”. Maybe somebody who is not into dubstep genre will find this sound useful for something hmm different 🙂
One of the best video from “In The Studio” series. Those who like the track above: Delerium – Silence (Thomas Gold Remix) should be satisfied with these videos because Thomas shows the plugins he used to make chords, to make bass etc.
Few days ago I received an email from Alex (Ascian) about his two tutorials dedicated to kick and snare. Overall, these are well explained tutorials which show the techniques you can use to create your own kicks, snares. For example “kick tutorial” introduces layering, EQing, Saturation, Filtering, Compression, Spectrum Analyzing.
This reminds me that at some point, definitely I’ll try to create my own kick drums and release them freely or for 1000 $ each 😉
Ahh, the topic states dubstep but I would say that these techniques are universal, at least when it comes to Electronic Dance Music.
