Layer Your Way To Awesome Bass Sounds

Unique and texture-rich sounds are often a combination of different layers. In today's video Pyramind Mentor Jor van der Poel shows how to combine different sonic colours to make new impressive bass sounds. Using a Foley Sample, a Unison Synth patch and some good old Saw Waves a completely new sounds is born, which, when re-sampled, turns into a unique patch to use for your bass-lines. It's a must watch for anyone interested in creating texture-rich, DnB-style sounds in the style of Noisia, Spor, Mefjus, Amon Tobin, etc.

Expressive Bass Sound-Design

To this day, one of the main challenges for Sound-Designers remains making sounds that are expressive, alive and moving. In this first part of a series on "Expressive Sound-Design" Pyramind mentor Jor van der Poel dives into creating sounds that breath, move, and feel like a real instrument, using Equator, a synth designed for the ROLI Seaboard. The unique "5D touch" of this keyboard allows to map different gestures to various synth parameters, which, in this example, makes for some truly dramatic bass sound.
