    Greetings everyone, how would I recreate the bass in this track exactly?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    It really sounds like a bass guitar to me but I could be wrong.

    Sounds like a synth to me. A couple key ingredients here:

    Oscillator 1: Square. Usually these subby basses are Saws, but the use of Square makes this bass a little different

    Oscillator 2: Sine, 1 octave up. For those higher notes this won’t make as much of a difference. But for those really low farty notes, the Sine will add body

    Filter: Low pass, 24 dB. Turn the Cutoff pretty far down, and then give it some Drive for saturation and warmth

    Amp Envelope: A little bit of Release, somewhere around 200 ms. This is one of those very subtle changes that makes the sound feel bigger/fatter.

    Voices: Mono

    Reaktor doesn’t have sine waves but can it still be recreated on it?

    Really? I’m surprised Reaktor doesn’t have a Sine somewhere.

    That being said, the next best thing is a Triangle wave. It’s a little brighter, but since you’re low passing the sound and removing much of the brightness, it should work.
