why not sample it from that tune if you need exactly that pad?
yeah, its uncool to steal from other dnb tracks but its the end result that counts and if you play with the pitch a bit, who would recognize? it's really no signature sound

do this pattern in a new FL project set to 140, bounce to audio and drop it in the other project. I don't think there is a smarter solution

does that make sense by the way?

no, not for my productions
really so complicated? Big Grin

I'm teaching myself to mix Drum n Bass and usally starting with Neo VIP. Just searching more of that style so i can try sth else.

spoken word intros (with athmosphere of course) are just cool Big Grin

spoken intros 02-05-2010 19:18 Forum: Track IDs


hey hey,
i'm not searching for a specific tune, more a couple ones with spoken word intros.
maybe even the words "drum n bass"
sth like Hive - Neo or Pendulum - Blood Sugar.
Guess Sub Focus also has one but i forgot Confused

just wanted to ask the same question Big Grin

well it depends. When i'm going for a kind of Liquid Track where the melody is important i start to write a piano hook and go from there. Of course i always loop a breakbeat at first to get the feeling.

when it comes to darkstep, neurofunk ect its quite complicated because i usually don't have the track in my mind before. just a very diffuse idea of how it should sound. it helps me to begin with pads, FX, stabs and then a subbass riff as a basic for the reece.

if i start with the drop i usually throw the track away the next day if its not super fantastic. but when i have a nice intro already i have something to keep me working on it. cheating myself you could say Big Grin

with layering i mean turning the volume one OSC 2 und 3 up

btw. just tryed it out.
OSC 1: sine wave - crs all down (24 semitones)
OSC 2: triangle - crs all down, fine -20, full volume
OSC 3: triangle - crs all down, fine +20, full volume

in the mixerchannel a lowpass filter, play a bit with the resonance
the rest is EQing and compressing. try fast attack and ratio 3:1 (around that)

shouldn't be too hard.
Just use the 3xOsc, first one a sine wave pitched down three octaves as a Sub, then layer two squares or saws (try out) detuned a bit and pitched down one or two octaves above.
I don't think any distortion is needed. Only a bit tube saturation and good compression.
The wooaaaab sounds like a simple lowpass filter thats opening.

The effect at 1:12 (and many more times) is achieved by using a cut-off filter envelope to open and close the filter. It creates a WOMP kinda sound. Then this sound is save as a sample and reloaded. Next you slide the pitch down a bit at the end of the sound.


hey this pitchbend thing seems interesting.
What kind of filter would you suggest?

yah, same for me. the point is that you can reeeally drive the sounds insane without loosing the punch or your PC perfomance. without resampling i would have to route my bass through 20-30 mixer channels to get the same sound Roll Eyes
Also you can also try weird stuff like vocoders or heavy flangers. Maybe I'm wrong but it seems to me that resampling adds a very warm noisy flair. not something you could do in a VST

What seems important to me is that you stay away from heavy filter modulations at this stage. few modulated notches are okay but if you throw a lowpass on it you loose a lot of frequency rage that you maybe need later on.

I also found out its extreamly important to EQ and compress after every resampling step or you will end up in white noise.

hi, thanks for the tips!
spent lots of time and i think i managed it Tongue
(I'm not trying to copy that track, it's just that little Sound that i needed)

I mixed a saw and a square wave (no detuning to keep the biting highMids)
then the usual fucking up, 3-way split, slight distortion ect.
resampling really did it. Until now i couldn't really believe that would help but it DOES
I got that stabby sound with a wide notch filter thats sweeping through, resampling and reversing the sample.
hell lot of compression et voilá.

Will show you the track when it's done.
so far you can check my last tune on soundcloud
would be cool if you tell me what you think.

great forum here Pleased

Neurofunk question 27-04-2010 16:58 Forum: Production questions & answers


hey guys,
I'm trying to get a certain Bass Sound which is quite common in Neurofunk/Darkstep.
if you have a listen here there is this short Bass Stab eg. at 1:12. How the Hell can this be done? Huh
It guess its a sweeping Filter (highpass? bandpass? ) but i can't nail it down.
Also no idea about the basic Sound. A Saw reece maybe but don't think it's the same as the Main Bass in this Track.
Who can help Confused

using FL Studio btw
