Gritty Bass – Madeon, Getter, Style Bass with Wavetable

I love when tracks have a nice lush sub bass that gives room for dubstep leads, and other midbass elements to come through. Freaking love how Madeon and Marshmallow do this in his music.  I recreated that style of sound using Ableton Live’s Wavetable synth. It’s a low gritty sub bass using a subtle formant sound.  Check out the video below:

Big Pad Chords – Virtual Riot, Odesza, Wavetable

So bass will only get you so far. You also need chords, pads, and other sounds to make the track feel finished. I am a big fan of lush chords. The kind I hear in Virtual Riot’s and Odesza’s tracks. I made this new Wavetable Preset with that sound in mind. Check out the video below or grab the preset for a $1.

Electro / Future Bass Wavetable Preset

Ok… Confession. I have loved Daft Punk forever. Love those guys. There Electro sound is on fire and I have loved seeing how thay have changed over the years. The sound of Daftpunk comes down to the talk box vocals and their bass lines. For years I have tried to decode the analog style sound, and have cracked it with Wavetable. I have also noticed this style of sound in more modern production like Haywyre and Jazzy style chill out. It’s been sneaking it’s way into a lot of Future Bass tracks.


So like always, you can grab the preset for $1 or watch the video for step by step on making your own.
