Bass Resampling technique Part 1


While doing my usual routine, lurking on production forums and occasionally posting about production, I got asked to do a tutorial showing my bass resampling technique.

So I’ve decided to split this up in 3 parts. Next part we will be using massive to create some fat bass sounds, 3rd will be about layering them. In the first part I show how I granulize audio used in the example posted here before (or similair sounding anyway). Watch in HD for the tiny letters.

        I might be doing some classes in The Netherlands (where I live). If and when I do I will add a section and might be offering some kind of interactive tuition online.

  • Do you prefer FL studio for sample editing because you believe it’s a superior editor for workflow and what not? Or is it just preference due to being more comfortable with it? Just wondering since I use a mac and was envious of how quick Edison allows you cut paste and drag and drop to other tracks..

    • Edison is a great tool – drag n drop is pretty unique. In the sense that Edison is like a native soundforge/Audition in a DAW – finetuned for it’s respective host (FL). In the end every DAW has it;s perks and it’s downsides. Personally I like to work with multiple DAW’s in different situations.
