Been toying around with Volca Bass and have then added a bunch of effects in Ableton. Resulted in this dubby track. I am not unsatisfied about it, despite the usual problems with mixing.
If anyone has definite tips and/or tricks for the final mixing of tracks: please share with me! smile 

have a nice week y'all!

Yeah, I really liked the high pitched noises and agree this makes me want to dance around.

Dope track, like the dubby feel of it, mix sounds good to me, I also find mixing one of the hardest things to do, smooth bass you got out of the Volca, when ever I use it I end up with a more “acid” sounding bass

I feel like you should have opened for Aphex Twin when I went to see him perform in Houston.  Real Talk.

Yeah, I've been toying around a lot lately with the Volca Bass, also looking up tutorials etc ... It's amazing how much you can get out of that tiny box! Just learned that you can make awesome dub chords with it too!
