    This patch shall now be dubbed “Indecent Filth”. Try this:

    LAYER 1 – The Filth – played very low (D0)

    Oscillator 1: Thin Pulse Wave

    Oscillator 2: Sine wave, pitched one octave up. Bypass all filters and effects with this one. We just want a smooth sine to fill in the body. Use a separate synth if you can’t bypass.

    Filter: High Pass 24 dB. Take off the bottom off the filth so it’s just the nasty buzz sound. Give it some Drive to saturate it a bit, give it some oomph.

    Amp Envelope: Short Release so it has little tail instead of an abrupt end.

    Distortion: Get filthy. Crank the distortion. You’ll have to experiment with your synth’s distortion types. I went with Serum’s “Diode 2” distortion.

    Reverb: Small size, cutoff/dampen a lot of highs so that you don’t hear the buzz in the reverb, just the body. Decent amount of Mix, to make it pretty wet.

    Pitch bending: To make some pitches bend you can use the Pitch Wheel. Or you can set up Portamento that only triggers when playing legato, and play grace notes whenever you want a note to be bent into.

    LAYER 2 – FM Gonk – A metallic attack transient

    Oscillator 1 – FM Carrier (the oscillator we’ll actually hear). Square wave.

    Oscillator 2 – FM Modulator (the oscillator we won’t hear, so turn its volume all the way down). Sine Wave. Pitch it up 19 semitones. Then turn up the FM amount until you get a nice bright and angry FM tone. We’re going to tame it with…

    Filter: Low Pass 24 dB. Bring down the Cutoff pretty far to get a nice round tone. Give it some generous Resonance and a bit of Drive. Then we’ll modulate the Cutoff with…

    Filter Envelope: Quick Decay/Release, around 250 ms, down to 0 Sustain. Increase the envelope amount until the attack transient sounds bright enough.

    Amp Envelope: Short Release so it has little tail instead of an abrupt end.

    Distortion: Just a bit. Give it a bit of filth.

    Reverb: Very small, but 50/50 mix. We want it to sound like it’s in a small basement.

    Multi-Band Compressor: I just enabled Serum’s Compressor, turned on Multiband mode, and turned up the Gain. Multi-band is great for soul-crushing compressor. Really squeeze this thing to death.

    Pitch Bend: Same as Layer 1
