    Hi everyone,

    I’ve been trying to replicate this opening(is it a bass?) patch. It sounds arpeggiated. I’ve tried playing a few different chords, but I can’t get this sound down.

    It’s the muffled (arpeggiated?), part, that is at the very beginning.

    Can’t help with the patch, but from what I can hear, the notes aren’t just going up or down, they’re sort of “ping-ponging” like this.

    Hi there!

    I was able to get something that sounds pretty close to the original bass patch. This sound is a lot more complex than initially sounds. Here’s what I did:

    Osc: Two Medium Pulses, one octave apart, to give that sort of hollow, almost nasal character to your sound.

    Filter: Low Pass, 24 dB. Crank it down quite far to really round it out. If you have the option, some drive will help make your sound fuller.

    Filter Envelope: Very fast decay/release to get that little “click” sound on the beginning of each note.

    Amp Envelope: Quick release, not too fast, just to hear the notes overlapping a bit.

    Even with all this, there was a certain something missing from my sound. I got that certain something by using:

    Chorus: To give that subtle smearing sound in the track. Fully wet, fully wide. Mild rate, quite a bit of intensity.

    If you still aren’t getting the full bass character you want, try using EQ to boost the bass a bit. Play around with it 🙂

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Jonathan! Is it an arpeggiated chord as well?

    Yeah, I used a sequencer. My sequence was C4 C3 C4 C3 Eb4 C3 C4 C3 Eb4 C3 C4 C3 Bb3 C3 C4 C3.
