How to get 80s bass synth sound?
How do you get that 80s bass synth sound?
It seems to be in a lot of 80s songs. It sounds like it is a very busy bass part. Really synthy sound but drives the whole song. I am not talking about the Blue Monday octave jumping sound.
Is it 16th notes? 8th notes? arpeggios? i don't really have good ears to pick up the intervals or notes being used. Is it an effect of the actual musician playing certain style or notes?
Here are some examples:
Depeche Mode Enjoy The Silence (bass starts immediately)
New Order Bizarre Love Triangle (not the actual bass players bass, the synth bass) (this one sounds little like jumping octaves) (starts at 2-3 secs in)
For some reason I cannot think of any other examples, and there are soooo many. Hopefully someone knows what i am talking about
