I experimented with a few things this week; but this really one really offered me an opportunity to let off some steam. I really let loose and had fun throwing my weight around. I feel like the composition could do with some work; and it might need some builds and drops to make it work in a dj set, but I'm just happy with the vibe and the no fucks given approach this project invited me to take.

I might revisit in the future; because I feel like it's not entirely complete; but this is what I managed to get done this week; and I'm happy that I did :-)

Sorry I couldn't have come up with a more imaginative name, this is the first thing that came to mind...

Hope you are all well!!

Much Love

Philly

This is badass. The fuzz, the crazy lines. Even the fuzzy bass. This is really cool, a good electronic track with an attitude. I love how you double the bass from 1:04. There are very sections in this track, adding a couple of breaks/drops could take it to the next level.

wow, I'm sorry I only discovered your music this week.  Your sound design skills are ridiculous.  What is your work flow/what are your main tools?

this sounds awesome super loud.  I LOVE the "f*ck" sample because it is perfectly crisp.

wow.  really impressed A++

fyouuuuck

Yeah this is pretty sick nasty, super aggressive no holds barred attitude to it. And yeah, that "Fuck" sample works perfectly because it's super clear and carries through the percussive break with two distinct hits, fuh-CK

This is one badace menacing sounding track.  The bass lines and drums sound like a gunfight in some sci-fi movie.  That vocal sample is phonetically down yo! [email protected]#%

Okay... so basically... I started doing this a long time ago, and it took a bit of practice; but the basic technique is as follows.

1. Take source synth(or any sound that you want) and automate parameters to taste.
2. Take an audio channel and set the incoming audio to come from the output of your sound source.
3. Record the audio
4. Split the audio using an Ableton rack 1 channel for sub, other channels for other piece of sound spectrum.
5. apply effects to taste on separate bands of the sample (but don't do anything to Sub apart from volume)
6. Repeat steps 2 - 5.
7. cut interesting pieces out of the sound and put it in a drum rack
8. Play around with the drum rack until you get a wicked cool riff...

You don't have to use this technique just for bass... it works for all sorts of stuff and I highly recommend testing it out on anything your curious about to see what possibilities you discover...

I use Serum now, but I started out on Ableton's operator. Processing the sound and getting the initial oscillators dialed in right is more important than buying a fancy synth(or plugins). I also used Ni's Massive at the beginning and it's got some awesome wavetables that

The technique is called resampling; and you can search youtube for tutorials on Noisia, Koan Sound, or Reese Bass and they will probably do a better job of explaining than I have...

I hope that helps...

If you are interested; you can listen to some of my tracks from my first weekly beats... https://weeklybeats.com/phillipegrishin/music/glyph
https://weeklybeats.com/phillipegrishin/music/opalize
https://weeklybeats.com/phillipegrishin/music/wubz-n-stuph

I had to spend a year fumbling around and testing the technique before it really paid off...

also - it's worth noting: when I started I used basically every plugin that I could get my hands on, but realised that I was barking up the wrong tree and now only use only the basic stock plugins that come with Ableton, guitar rig and a few free bits and pieces... Basically it's not important that you use some crazy plugins, and its more important that you are creative with the initial synth patch, and slowly resample in stages to achieve results...

Good luck!!

Let me know how you get on!

P.S... please don't reveal my secret identity or I will no longer be able to fight crime at night... the city needs me and my sound design skills... I hope you too will one day fight for freedom armed with a selection of wonky bass noises... May the Bass Gods be with you!! A blessing on your subwoofer... Viva la Bass Musique!

all the basst

thank you so kindly masked avenger!  so I actually thought this was some plugin and this is awesome to find out.  i'm sure there are people who are selling plugins that are just doing this technique - can't wait to try this!
