Do both basslines play the same notes?SteveJ... said:Try playing with velocity and overlapping certain notes to get the classic 303 glide. I always run 2 Basslines too - one playing and EQ'd low and sidechained to the kick and one playing higher and EQ'd higher to give the definition.
What do you mean by 35ms for it's release stage?matt said:I'd recommend 3/4 length notes for bass, rather than half-length (32nd), just to give you more useful time per note - release stage has to be at least 35ms or so (to avoid mild fluffiness or even a click as the note fades out quicker than the fundamental's wavelength) but any longer than that is a waste of time that you could add to the sustain, giving you a tighter, fuller sound - think of it as compression at sound design stage.
BTW, the wavelength thing is also why you can't compress bass with very quick attack/release (below 50ms, combined) as such compression will mess up frequencies below that time/wavelength (and the lower the freq the worse it gets). 20Hz needs 50ms for a full cycle... Just thought I'd mention it
There you go, matedjones said:Btw I'd like to get some tips on compressing (sidechaning) the bass with the kick, within Cubase SX 2.
