    First post here on the forum. Trying Syntorial currently and loving it..

    I need some help to figure out how to create this bass patch on serum. It’s from the lovely Cristoph track called “Big H”. The bass starts at 2:12.

    Thanks in advance

    Nice bass patch. Try this:

    Oscillator 1: Pulse wave, medium pulse width. 2-voice unison, with enough detune to make it sound a little aggressive. Unison width should be a little wide.

    Oscillator 2: Same as Osc 1 but one octave higher

    Filter: 24 dB lowpass. Set the Cutoff around noon, and then modulate it with…

    Filter Envelope: Zero sustain and really quick decay and release to create an attack transient. Modest mod amount, just enough to create that aggressive pointed attack.

    Amp Envelope: Similar pluck shape as filter envelope but with longer decay and release so you can hear the sustain level of the filter envelope (the round tone).

    Voices: mono

    Delay: 1/8th note delay, and shift the right delay just slightly later so that you hear the delays in stereo. A little wet and a modest amount of feedback. The goal here is to hear the first delay clearly but quietly on the left and right edges of the stereo field.

    Thank you, definetely gonna try this!

    I think the amp and filter envelopes was giving me a bit of a hard time. The delay times can be tricky too.

    Lovely one, I used to make bassline like this one with Juno-106, the Sound of Chicago!

    Actually I do fat basses using MFB VCO/DCO module, beautiful (and cheap) module: following @Joe Hanley notes patch, try to use a single oscillator in DCO mode.

    Have fun!
