How to get fat and big sound synth bass lines?
 
Just wondering how you get fat bass lines like this:

Is it just fx, panning, doubling it?

thanks

Doesn't really sound that complicated to me. You could quite easily do it in Thor (or pretty much any synth for that matter). Just create a plucky moog style bass synth sound (saw wave, 24db low pass filter, an envelope modulating the cutoff with zero attack, sustain, release and a fairly quick delay. Then layer a sub osc (sine or triangle) one or two octaves below.

Saw your reason 7 review the other day. :)

Some possible corrections:

"-Rack Extensions always need an Internet connection"
This is false. You only need internet to demo. Once you own it, no Internet needed.

"-No coexistence of different versions"
IIRC you can rename the install folder and have two versions..(?)..maybe that was back on 5 or 6 idk.

Yes, you can have as many different versions of Reason in your system as you like, provided each is installed into a different folder.

This bass sound has the immediate "vibe" of an 80's polysynth like a Jupiter, Juno, Oberheim etc. So if you take your time Thor, Subtractor can create the basic sound with a method based on advice given above.

Don't add too much sub bass or it will turn to mud (even if you don't think so at first. Let the body frequencies breathe as they are the juice of this.

I'd then reach for Pulveriser with a bit of Squash and maybe a bit of 24db Lo Pass to add a sense of punch.

I may then grab a Maximiser and turn the Soft Clip on. Dial up a bit of Gain on the Input until it sounds beefy.

Note that in this track the bass drops in the mix as vocals etc come in so the intro establishes this sound and our ears follow it into the mix if we like it more than the vocal.

If you like this then get into Berlin which is this sort of thing done properly, the real original deal so to speak.

layer it !! see the whole bass as a two story building ! the bottom as the low freq .Compressed,ect

for the second level take the same bass,or a new one with the same note patern and remove all low freq ! and add distortion or whatever effect to get it dirty !

if those are EQ differently ! you should already get a phat sound !
