    Hi! wells anyway I need some production help. I know how to make a basic drum track ie snare, hat, kick combo, but I need help on techniques for making the "bass" part. I don't mean the simple sine wave bass that compliments the kick but like the more complex stuff that has a life of its own (the warbling...thats the best word I can use to describe it). What settings do I need to use on my soft synth to get that?

    Thanks.

    like what this guy did with "citrus" in FLstudio. I use Logic/Ableton and have a bunch of soft synth plug ins. It looks like he messes around with the filters but if someone could break it down for me in more detail I would really appreciate it.

    I use samples and modulate them alongside using a synth. The best way IMO is to create a 16 bar loop and within that 16 bars, vary the basslines up here in there ie - change the main b-line into a different b-line the 1/2 bar before the end of the 16 bars.

    The next 8 bars could be one semi-tone down.

    the key is variation IMO.

    (I'm using operator and use Live for everything)
