Synth Quickie – Sub Bass


You can check out how to make a simple sine sub at 00:19, a customizable saw sub at around 2:02 and layering at 3:10

Oh, and below are the recipes. Bon appétit!


  • Oscillator: Sine
  • Filter: If you want to bring in more mids to “hear” the pitch better, use a Lowpass filter and crank the Drive.
  • Distortion: Again, if you want to bring in more mids, add some distortion

Saw Sub

  • Oscillator: Saw
  • Filter: Lowpass, 24 dB. Bring the Cutoff way down, and then adjust it to your liking, depending on how much you want to be able to “hear” the pitch. Use Res to lighten it a bit and reduce some of the heaviest bottom end. And use Drive to make it warm and saturated.

Can’t wait to try these out?
