Pow­er­ing the low end with EXS24 and Sy­lenth1

Computer Music - - Make Music Now / Producer Masterclass -

The bot­tom end of the stab comes from a sam­pled 808 loaded into Logic’s EXS24 sam­pler, and an edited Sy­lenth1 pre­set: ‘Dusky Rum­ble Brass’. It’s got a good name – you know it’s go­ing to sound good,” smiles Alex. Turn­ing to the ac­tual bassline run­ning un­der­neath the stab, Alex de­scribes it as “dis­gust­ing – it sounds rank by it­self. I think I started to get rid of lots of bits in it that I didn’t like, but then de­cided I kind of liked it. It’s a bit raspy – just a sub, but with a slightly dif­fer­ent sound to it.”
