Build­ing up the bassline

12:01Drew is now in pos­ses­sion of Steve’s ex­ported files. After work­ing on the beat a lit­tle, he gets on with the bassline, He’s made a start with a patch from u-he’s Hive synth, get­ting the juices flow­ing. “I’ll start jam­ming on the key­board so that I’ve got a very ba­sic skele­ton bassline,” he tells us. After this, Drew du­pli­cates the MIDI part and sends it out of Logic into his out­board Ac­cess Virus C synth. The patch that Drew reck­ons fits well with the tune is a sin­is­ter, de­layed ‘wob’ sound that kicks in a lit­tle later than the Hive sound, com­ple­ment­ing it and adding some tex­ture. After that, another Hive layer puts a lit­tle more top-end en­ergy into the bass part.
