6. Snappy Juno bass with TAL-U-NO-LX-V2
1 Let’s use Togu Audio Line’s TAL-U-NOLX to whip up a snappy bass like those made famous by Roland’s Juno series. We’ll start with the default Startup patch. In the Master section, we’ll lower the Octave Transpose to -1. Next, in the VCF, we’ll reduce the Frequency to a little over 2, and set the Resonance to around 6. Yeah, it’s almost silent now!
2 Let’s call up that ADSR envelope. Find the VCF’s Env slider and push it up to nearly full. Now the sound is much brighter and a little more dynamic. The ADSR is only affecting the VCF – let’s switch the VCA to Env. The sound is a bit too brash, so in the DCO section we’ll click the sawtooth wave out and the pulse wave in.
3 Set the PW (Pulse Width) switch to Manual and PW slider to 5 for a square wave sound. Back in the ADSR, we’ll set the Decay to just under 2, the Sustain to just above 4, and the Release to 5. In the DCO, let’s reduce the Sub Osc level to half. As a finishing touch, we’ll go to the Chorus section and activate the II button. Sweet!
