That bass, so damned dark and rich. Enjoy the groove changes towards the end, however that was done where it's resetting was interesting. I'm not so sure the sidechain-style ducking works for me, but Bb has a good life ahead of him if this is his first Max sequencer smile

Thanks a lot man smile Totally agree on the sidechaining, I think I went a little overboard. It's actually about as brutal as sidechaining gets because the inverse of the kick's envelope was directly wired into the rest of it, making it more like an  envelope-controlled crossfader than an amplifier.
I did fib a little as I've made some primitive Max sequencers before, and this one was pretty primitive too, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've recorded one. Glad you liked the rhythmic variations too smile

Nice and grubby smile - i liked the side chaining but maybe less depth or a quicker recovery would have been worth exploring. If the ducking is built into your max sequencer it would be cool to give it its own envelope (per trig if possible)

Thank you smile
NIce idea - I used to do stuff like that on my Elektrons a lot. The nice thing about the way I set it up is it made the mix have no clipping, by definition, and the kick was as loud as possible, while still having dynamics (although it squished the overall dynamics of course)

I can here the electrolytes. Interesting grainy quality of the oscillators.  Like the bassy kick sound and squelchy filters. I was listening to a few tracks on WB and the raw quality and sound exploration really grabbed my attention!
