It's not a question of naming basses but rather techniques..
E.G. Reese, SUB,...

You can use a lot of VSTi's to reach the desired sound.

i respect the question... just dont ask how people made em...

you can use all kinds of good solid synths,

like absynth
z3ta
massive
legacy cell
NWsynth
NRG
v-station

etc

it just depends on what yorue looking for and how intricate you want it to be...

also its not just about teh synth... gotta learn to layer and process as well

it's just about what you want to accomplish with your tunes, if you really want that same old sound everybody else has used like a thousand times, then there will be people that can say use this preset and that preset like this and that, but would you learn anything? my guess, no you don't.

it's better to just try things out yourself and find some mad ass sounds that aren't used yet to get a great vibe to your tunes don't you think?

I am big fan of fiddling with just plain Saws, Sines and Squares to get basses, whacking a load overdrive and compression on em and then running them though LP, HP or whatever to get various different sounds.

Although two nice VSTs i occasionally use are
TBL and
Bass station

z3ta+ is an awesome synth for bass/reese action. as is absynth.. compression and distortion are standard in my basses as is good eq.

Hey I always wondered with FL how you can make a sample go for the length of time you set it for in piano roll... Whenever I try to write a melody, the sample overlaps and ends up distorting all the time, so I end up writing my melodies around the sample I use which sucks. Anyway around this?

Hmm it could just be a setting I don't have turned on... You know with the original samples you get with FL, you can edit their length, e.g a bass sound can last a quarter note or a half note, but all the new samples I have I cannot edit this. My problem is that if the sample was the length of a half note, I'd never be able to write 2 quarter notes because the sounds would overlap. If I changed the sample, then I'd never be able to have the bass the length of a quarter note...

Basically is there some way to make the sample be able to be manipulated by note length in piano roll?

Simply go to the sampler's volume envelope (in the INS tab) and set the del, att, hold and decay to zero and the sus knob to full, set the release to whatever you want: I usually just use a very little bit to stop it clicking.

Also to stop the sounds over lapping set it to cut itself in the Misc tab, where it says "cut cut by". Or set the maximum polyphony to 1.
