Tutorial 2 from The Synthesist covers more ways to produce the classic wobble effect that is so characteristic in Dubstep.
This tutorial covers various approaches to programming bass in both Propellerheads' Reason and Ableton Live. Each application is widely known in the industry, however both prove to have certain inconsistencies that have to be worked around. This video does not attempt to point out all of the pit falls, but to give a fairly quick method on kicking off bass sound production.
Check out the video, and the patches that are linked through the site below.
Notes on the patches:
Maelstrom Wobble- This is the initial synth, setup in the video. Its very basic, two oscillators, with the Mod A routing intact, to give an idea of how that concept works.
Wobble NNXT- This session shows the setup for the NNXT sampler and its built in LFO. The Matrix Sequencer is included as shown in the video, routed to the LFO rate on the NNXT. This is more useful when working with the programmed notes in the main sequencer.
Wobble Filter Thru- This is the final Reason example, simply showing how to route the audio through the Malstrom filters, which offers the best filters and LFO's in Reason. This setup is ideal, when using any sound source, because it allows your source instrument to remain unchanged, while using the filter to alter the sound. There are obvious benefits to this setup.
